Watch our video to find out how this investment project will bring significant benefits to the coastal environment of the popular tourist town of Largs.
The improvement work involved the renewal and upgrade of sections of the existing waste water infrastructure near to the beachfront in Largs so that the network can continue to serve customers and protect the local environment for years to come.
A significantly longer, screened outfall pipe, 220 metres in length from shore to sea, has been constructed to replace a short storm outfall pipe which was 80 metres in length.
He added: “To help us protect the environment and Scotland’s coastal waters, rivers and lochs, we would ask our customers to only flush the 3Ps down the toilet – Pee, Poo and (Toilet) Paper. Everything else should go in the bin.”

The work has been undertaken ahead of Scotland’s Year of Coasts and Waters 2020.
