Water upgrade in pipeline for games

23 Jan 2012

A £13 million project to upgrade water treatment works in time for the Commonwealth Games is getting under way, designed to improve services and help protect the River Clyde.

Scottish Water is about to start three major upgrades at key waste-water treatment works which serve more than a million people in the Glasgow and Paisley area.

The projects will improve the Shieldhall and Dalmarnock Waste Water Treatment Works (WWTW) in Glasgow and the Laighpark works in Paisley. The work will help protect the environment on the River Clyde and meet ministerial and Scottish Environment Protection Agency requirements.

The improvements at Shieldhall, which serves around 585,000 people in the south of Glasgow, Newton Mearns and Renfrew areas, will involve investment of about £6.5m.

This investment will ensure a first-class service and help protect the River Clyde.
The work will help ensure water meets ministerial and Scottish Environment Protection Agency requirements and will include the replacement of screens, the replacement or refurbishment of pumps and the refurbishment of the sludge pumping station's main switchboard.
