£2.2 Million Investment Project in Largs Complete
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.
This now means that combined storm water is screened and can be returned much further out into the deeper sea channel, thereby reducing the potential impact on the bathing water and the wider marine environment.

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.”
Alliance partners amey Black and Veatch (aBV) assigned George Leslie to carry out the project which took around ten months for completion.
The work has been undertaken ahead of Scotland’s Year of Coasts and Waters 2020.
