Watercourse inspections and clearance
We have a duty to assess bodies of water and carry out works of clearance and repair where it will substantially reduce the risk of flooding. Works will be scheduled and carried out based on priority.
We publish our inspection schedule in each area:
- Inspection schedule for Annandale and Eskdale [85kb]
- Inspection schedule for Nithsdale [75kb]
- Inspection schedule for Stewartry [87kb]
- Inspection schedule for Wigtown [77kb]
We'll assess and prioritise any clearance or repair work which is identified during our inspections.
We carry out reactive inspections if there is a flood event or someone highlights something of concern to us.
The schedule of reactive clearance and repair works is available to view on request.
