Investment to improve waste water system

WEST OF SCOTLAND WATER are about to embark on major investment to improve Stranraer's waste water system and treatment facilities.

The drainage system in the Agnew Park area will be upgraded and storage provided to overcome flooding in this area at a cost of 1 million.

Just over two weeks ago, torrential ran caused serious flooding in the area. The waste water treatment facilities scheme will cost an estimated 8.1 million and will see a new pumping station, rising main and treatment works built in the north-east area of Lochryan.

Waste water will be pumped from the vicinity of the existing works at Portrodie along the rising main into the new works where it will undergo primary, secondary and micro-biological treatment, before being discharged into deeper water found in the north-east area of the loch - greatly benefiting the marine environment of Lochryan.
