The article reports on the criticisms of Waterwatch Scotland against the Scottish water sector for errors over the past decade at the Campbeltown wastewater treatment works. West of Scotland Water originally commissioned the plant in 2000 and was taken over by Scottish Water at its formation in 2002. According to the watchdog, treatment works were inherently fundamentally flawed and plant capacity was too low.
