Location: Tobermory, United Kingdom
The objective of the Coastal Communities Framework was to provide over 30 small communities along the west coast of Scotland with sewage treatment facilities. The provision of these facilities had an overall value of £40 M.
The innovative and environmentally sustainable development at Tobermory is to be officially opened on 18th November. The scheme for the Leslie MWH Joint Venture was to provide a new collection and transfer system to intercept the municipal discharges at a new pumping station. This incorporated storm storage, and a CSO utilising the existing outfall. A second transfer pumping station then pumps the sewage to the treatment works. After treatment the final effluent is discharged by gravity to Tobermory Bay through an outfall pipe.
