Baddinsgill Reservoir, Borders, Scotland

Baddinsgill Reservoir

Baddinsgill reservoir is a water catchment reservoir situated near West Linton in the Pentland Hills in Scotland. The upstream face consisted of pre-cast concrete blocks placed on a granular drainage layer. Many of the blocks had suffered weathering over the years resulting in a reduced protection against wave attack.

The surface of the concrete blocks was cleaned and primed before a minimum thickness of 100mm Open Stone Asphalt (OSA) was placed over the top 8m of the upstream face.
