Scottish Water has said that Amey Black and Veatch will start work on a ground investigation at Tarbet today as part of plans to improve the town’s sewer network and tackle flooding in the area.
The investigation will inform design and implementation of improvements needed to help reduce the risk of flooding in the village’s Harbour Street and Barmore Road.
A spokesman for Amey Black and Veatch said: “We’ll be digging trial pits to confirm the location of existing services and ground conditions in the area. This information will then be used to determine the best engineering solutions for the project and so it’s really important that these investigations are carried out. Any areas we dig will be reinstated upon completion.”
The work is expected to take four weeks to complete and Scottish Water corporate affairs regional manager Ruaridh MacGregor said that the work had been planned outside of the summer tourist season to minimise the impact on the local community.
