The Chapeltonmoss Spring supplies water to Benromach Distillery at Forres. The spring outlet takes the form of a pipe discharging to the ground surface into a drainage ditch flowing to the Burn of Mosset (Figure 1). A separate pipe collects water from the spring outlet pipe and carries it to Benromach Distillery via a system of collection tanks and sand filters. The Chapeltonmoss Spring does not form a spring in the true sense (i.e., a discharge of groundwater directly from an aquifer to the ground surface). The water discharging at the spring outlet pipe travels from various sources through a mixed system of buried pipes and surface water flows. The Chapeltonmoss area is part of a proposed flood alleviation scheme that would see a large part of the area covered by stored flood water during high flow times, including the current spring outlet pipe and at least part of the spring catchment area. The size of the proposed flooded area and the duration of flooding events will vary depending on the nature of the flow event. This report considers the following:
