Reservoirs (Scotland) Act 2011 (Restrictions on Disclosure of Information in relation to National Security etc.) Order 2015 (S.I. No. 48 of 2015).

Type of law

This Order makes provision for protection of reserved information regarding water reservoirs for purposes of national security. Section 9 of the Reservoirs (Scotland) Act 2011 requires the Scottish Environment Protection Agency to maintain a register containing, among other things, a map showing the area of land which would be likely to be flooded in the event of an uncontrolled release of water from a controlled reservoir. Section 55 of the Act empowers the Scottish Ministers to make provision in relation to the preparation of flood plans for controlled reservoirs setting out the action to be taken by the reservoir managers to control or mitigate the effects of flooding from any escape of water from any such reservoir. The Secretary of State may prohibit disclosure of information about controlled reservoirs.
