The 3rd editions of "Sewers for Scotland" and "Water for Scotland" are available to download below.
The documents provide updated guidance for all standards and specifications required when designing new water or drainage infrastructure. All new designs received, from 1st August 2015 will be expected to align with these new design documents.
Note : We recognise that our customers and consultants will need a reasonable period to review and adapt designs accordingly. We will allow for a two month period from this date to allow for a full transition from designs aligned with Version 2 of both documents.
