Over the course of 2013 and 2015 the residents in the town of New Cumnock, East Ayrshire had been badly affected by flooding.

East Ayrshire Council appointed Barhale to complete Phase 1 of the flood protection scheme; installing preventative measures in the rural Leggate area to the West of the town.

This area had flooded due to the Connel Burn (a stream that runs in amongst the homes) over-spilling its banks.
