Abstract

This article presents a design appraisal for the construction of a water off-take channel following Construction Design and Management regulations (CDM). Furthermore, a case study to pump water from River Tay near the village of Luncarty requires the construction of a water off-take channel (abstraction channel). An initial section plan of water abstraction scheme has been conducted. The design will be reviewed by taking into consideration the main concerns regarding Health and Safety concerning Construction Design and Management Regulations (CDM) 2007 and its amendments in 2015. Mostly, the greatest attention will be given to the construction stage of the project where these concerns will be questioned in terms if they can be catered for in designing the water take-off channel.
