Scotland: Glasgow's "Smart Canal" Is Europe's First

GLASGOW

Construction of Europe’s first ‘smart canal’, which will use the 250-year-old Forth & Clyde Canal and modern technology to mitigate flood risk as well as enable regeneration, is underway in Glasgow. The pioneering ‘digital surface water drainage system’ will unlock 110 hectares across the north of the city for investment, regeneration and development, paving the way for more than 3,000 new homes. The £17m project will use sensor and predictive weather technology.
