Dilapidated concrete flume saved in CC8 remediation project

30 November 2017

In August 2017, Concrete Canvas® GCCM* (CC) was used to remediate a dilapidated concrete flume forming part of a hydro-electric system in Dumfries & Galloway, Scotland.

The flume, known as the Muck Burn Flume, is a concrete culvert/aqueduct which was constructed in circa 1935 as part of the Galloway Hydro Scheme. The flume forms part of the Muck Burn Dam civil assets located near Loch Doon, which links to Drumjohn power station. The flume was created to divert flow from the muck burn to Loch Doon to prevent water build up behind the Muck Dam.
