Brechin Flood Prevention Scheme

The Brechin Flood Prevention Scheme is now complete.

The integrated flood and drainage scheme will protect the town from flooding and consists of:

  • direct defences
  • flood embankments
  • flood walls
  • upgrades to the existing surface water drainage system
  • work on the Denburn Culvert
  • and installation of three submerged pump stations.

It will provide a 1 in 200 years’ current-day standard of defence.

As well as new road surfaces and footways and new lighting and seating areas, environmental enhancements included:

  • landscaped and grassed embankments
  • the installation of bird and bat boxes
  • upgrades to the play park facilities at the Inch

The scheme was funded by Scottish Government and Angus Council. The work was carried out by Morrison Construction.
