Campbeltown is a port on Scotland's Kintyre Peninsula. During periods of heavy rainfall, storm water flows affected the quality of the town’s coastal waters. Previous work at Campbeltown Wastewater Treatment Works (WwTW) has failed to address the area’s long-standing sewerage and flooding issues.
Black & Veatch was awarded Stage 5 of the upgrade that also contributed significantly in turning the project into a success story for Scottish Water.
“Scottish Water’s vision was to remove flooding from the town centre of Campbeltown and to remove the odour of waste spilled into the loch, hence improving Scottish Water’s reputation with the community, our stakeholders and the Scottish government,” said Eddie Burns, Project Manager, Campbeltown WwTW, Scottish Water. “With Black & Veatch’s help, the project was signed off five months ahead of schedule.”
