A MAJOR £12 million spree should ensure the rivers running through Clydesdale will be at their cleanest for hundreds of years.

That is the aim behind a major package of spending by Scottish Water, upgrading several treatment plants, boosting the quality of local rivers – mainly the Clyde – but also the water that comes out of your tap at home.

Although several of the projects are underway and even nearing completion, the company held a formal launch of the investment package at perhaps the best-loved stretch of the river, the Falls at New Lanark.

Joining the company’s regional community manager Mark Maclaren was South Lanarkshire’s Provost Russell Clearie.
