Wideford Reservoir

A tiny reservoir on the eastern slopes of Wideford Hill in Orkney, Wideford Reservoir is located a half-mile (0.8 km) west of Hatston and 1½ miles (2.5 km) northwest of Kirkwall, which it supplies with drinking-water. Opened in 2001 and retained by an earth embankment dam, it is now operated by Scottish Water.
