Scottish Water Plans Biggest Wastewater Works in Century

Share

Scottish Water Ltd., the fourth- biggest U.K. water company, is planning the largest improvement in Glasgow’s wastewater infrastructure in at least a century.

The publicly owned utility said the 250 million-pound ($379 million) works program intends to improve the water and environmental conditions of the River Clyde and help control sewer flooding from heavier rainfall amid climate change.

Network upgrades and water-system works will include safety valves on the River Clyde and tributaries such as the River Kelvin and White Cart Water to control wastewater during storms, as well as improvements in southwestern Glasgow to remove excess surface water from known “pinchpoints.”
