SCOT­TISH Wa­ter has com­pleted a project to en­able growth in the Ar­gyll vil­lage of Lochgair, on the shores of Loch Fyne.

The £470,000 in­vest­ment, which be­gan in Septem­ber 2016, in­volved the in­creas­ing of waste wa­ter treat­ment ca­pac­ity in the vil­lage with the in­stal­la­tion of new larger sep­tic tanks.

Growth in the area had been re­stricted due to the in­ca­pac­ity of the ex­ist­ing waste wa­ter treat­ment fa­cil­ity.

The project in­volved the in­stal­la­tion of two new 30 cu­bic- me­tre sep­tic tanks and as­so­ci­ated in­fra­struc­ture, which was car­ried out for Scot­tish Wa­ter by contractor Cor­rie Con­struc­tion Ltd, of Fort Wil­liam.

Fred Bruce, con­vener of West Loch Fyne Com­mu­nity Coun­cil, added: ‘I wel­come com­ple­tion of this im­por­tant project in Lochgair. It is good news for the com­mu­nity be­cause it will en­able growth and that’s some­thing that is im­por­tant to any small, ru­ral com­mu­nity like ours.’

Grass-seed­ing on the site will take place over the next few weeks and Scot­tish Wa­ter has agreed with the com­mu­nity to buy shrubs to be planted in the area.
