Keep the Water Cycle Running Smoothly

We’re always working so the cycle never stops. Join our campaign to keep the cycle running.

EVERYONE can do their bit to help keep Scotland’s water cycle moving. Taking some simple steps can save water and prevent blocked pipes and drains, as well as sewer flooding.

The Numbers

32,940 - miles of sewer pipes which take waste water away from homes and businesses which are maintained and improved by us.

1,826 – waste water treatment works across Scotland which treat the water before returning it to the environment.

35,000 – blockages in drains and sewers dealt with by our teams every year. These can cause flooding which affect your homes, neighbours, and can polute rivers, burns and coastal waters.

80% - of these blockages are caused by people flushing the wrong items down the toilet, or pouring fat, oil and grease down the sink.
