Arbroath (Brothock Water) Flood Protection Scheme

Scheme proposals

The Arbroath Flood Protection Scheme has been developed to protect the town from flooding.

The main elements of the work are:

  • the construction of three flood storage areas at Brothock Meadows, St Vigeans and Hercules Den, using embankments and flow controls to retain flood water above the natural ground level
  • enhanced defences including a combination of new flood walls where there are no flood defences, or where existing defences are in poor condition, local raising of existing walls and some minor remedial works to existing walls.
