In February, a multi-million pound investment project in Glasgow's West End to help improve the environment and water quality in the River Kelvin started.
The project is being delivered by Scottish Water's alliance partner Amey Black and Veatch (aBV) and involves the installation of new and improved waste water infrastructure, including underground combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) chambers and upgraded pipework.
This new infrastructure will help prevent items which are wrongly flushed down the toilet - items like rags, baby wipes, plastic cotton buds, etc. - from overflowing into the River Kelvin during severe storm events and reduce the frequency and volume of waste water spillages in storm conditions.
The £15 million project will span eleven sites along the Kelvin Walkway from the bandstand in Kelvingrove Park to the Botanic Gardens.
An archaeological dig has also taken place at the site of the former North Woodside Flint Mill to ensure that anything of historical importance on this heritage site is protected and preserved.
Work on the entire project is expected to be completed by the end of summer 2020.
