Argyll and Bute Environmental Improvements

Coast view

Overview

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 improvement works are at five different sites at Toward, Rhu, Kilmun, Innellan and Strone.

The improvement works will ensure waste water collected from local homes and businesses that are connected to the existing sewer network is treated, preventing the discharge of untreated water into coastal waters. This will enable compliance with strict water quality standards while protecting and enhancing the environment.

We held 3 public information events in Rhu, Kilmun and Innellan from 28th February to 2nd March. At these events we had the drawings on display and had the project team to answer any questions the community had. We have now taken these on board which helped form our design and management of the traffic flows. 

The table below shows the progress in each village: -
