Utility finishes £13m water works in Glasgow and Paisley

Three waste water treatment works which serve more than one million people in the west of Scotland have been revamped at a cost of more than £13m.

Scottish Water refurbished the sites at Shieldhall and Dalmarnock in Glasgow and Laighpark in Paisley.

The aim was to improve drainage, help reduce flooding, support building developments and boost water quality in the River Clyde and its tributaries.

It will ensure the works continue to meet statutory requirements.

Gary Caig, Scottish Water's west area wastewater assets manager, said: "Shieldhall, Dalmarnock and Laighpark play a very important role in providing waste water services to about a million customers in the area.

"This new investment, which mainly involved new, improved screening, will ensure they continue to provide a first-class service and help protect the natural environment of the River Clyde for years to come."
