Excellent Water Quality is at the Heart of the Community

What a great turnout for the protest on 9th March against Scottish Water’s proposal for downgrading the Waste Water treatment Works in Gairloch and SEPA’s subsequent granting of permission to reduce facilities in Gairloch. A significant number of people have contacted the Scottish Government to seek a call in of the proposals (see page 6 for the letter sent to the Scottish Ministers by the Community Council).
