Argyll and Bute Environmental Improvements

Coast view 


Scottish Water is investing over £5m in Argyll and Bute to improve and protect the coastal waters around the Holy Loch and parts of the Firth of Clyde.

The planned improvement works will see a number of septic tanks being installed. This will ensure waste water collected from local homes and businesses is treated to a high standard, preventing the discharge of untreated water into coastal waters.

This will enable compliance with strict water quality standards while protecting and enhancing the environment.

There are five different sites where work is planned: Toward, Rhu, Kilmun, Innellan and Strone.

We are currently holding information events to allow the community to find out more about our proposed works and meet the project team. If you are unable to attend please see the below link to view the information posters that were used at the events.
