Project Update - June 

We plan to restart upgrading the sewer network to help protect the environment of Paisley from Monday 15th June.

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, this project was paused.

What we are doing

Scottish Water is investing £3m in improvements to its waste water infrastructure in Paisley to help improve the water quality and natural environment in local rivers. 

The installation of better screening and new pipework will improve the environment on the White Cart Water, and in turn the River Clyde, benefiting aquatic life, flora and fauna.

These latest improvements will bring even more benefits for the local environment by reducing the frequency and volume of waste water spillages into local rivers in storm conditions.

When we are doing it

Work due to begin on February 3 will involve the upgrade of a Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) in Seedhill Road and infrastructure improvements in part of the adjacent East End park.  The project will be delivered by our contractors George Leslie and is expected to take about six months to complete.

During this time there will be periodic closures on Seedhill Road and some traffic restrictions imposed on Mill Street. All restrictions/closures will be notified in advance and diversion routes clearly signposted.  The children’s play park near Mill Street will be available to use as normal.
