Deculvert (daylight) sections of Spittal Burn.

Storage for water

Storm Water Drainage


Building with Nature

Created at: 24 Apr 2022


At the south end of Kings Park, work has been done to deculvert, or 'daylight', a section of the Spittal Burn to form a new length of open watercourse along its original route. This provides morphology and bio-diversity benefits, as well as providing more space for the water in the form of flood attenuation / storage by re-creating floodplain, which will help to reduce flood risk for communities downstream.
