The work is expected to last up to two weeks

Small segments of the local networks, at Harbour View in Methil and Haugh Road in Burntisland, have been impacted by the growth of tree roots. Work will take place to reline the existing sewer.

This work began on Monday and is expected to last approximately one to two weeks.

Access to residents’ properties and footpaths will be maintained at all times and there will be no disruption to the roads, water supply or waste water service during this period.

Relining of the sewer may require 24 hour attendance and as a result there may be some low level background noise and lights generated by the equipment supporting our works, however to help mitigate noise levels Scottish Water will be using special equipment to minimise disturbance.

Project Manager Scott Heath said: “We are working hard to always do the right thing for the environment in Scotland and we have identified essential upgrades to the waste water network in both Methil and Burntisland.

“Following site investigations last year we are now ready to begin work on the main phase of construction.

“When we have completed our work, the area will be reinstated to the original standard. Your water supply will not be affected during this period and toilets and sinks can be used as normal.

“We would like to thank you for your understanding and cooperation while we complete these essential works.”
