Old reservoir
Old reservoir
This reservoir used to provide the water supply to Dunkeld.
It has now been incorporated into the Dowally Hydro Electric Scheme.
This is the view from the dam and will not change when the scheme comes into operation.
Dowally Hydro-Electric Scheme
This is a 'run-of-river' scheme where water is extracted from the Dowally Burn at an old abandoned dam, the intake; carried down the hillside alongside the watercourse in a pipeline or penstock; to the powerhouse housing the turbine, generator, transformer and switching units with a connection to the national grid; and finally the water returns to the burn in the tailrace.
This scheme passes from NO0148 through NO0147 to NO0047 .
