Burntisland: Scottish Water Still Cleaning Up after the Flood

The rainstorm that ended Live on the Links ten days ago once again lifted the sewer cover on Kirkton Road with gallons of water flooding the lowest part of the road and spilling over the grass by the swings.

After a prolonged Twitter exchange, Scottish Water finally fenced off the most polluted area today – and promises “to attend with a jet vactor”.


Councillors in Burntisland have called on Scottish Water to meet and discuss a plan of action to tackle long-standing flooding issues at a town playpark.

Councillors Gordon Langlands and Kathleen Leslie have been contacted by locals concerned about contaminated sewage water flooding the park, which is bounded by Kirkton Road, Broomhill Avenue and Dick Crescent.
