The Belleport project involves the design, procurement and construction of a new wastewater treatment works and sludge treatment centre.
Existing sewage sites at Alness Point and Rosskeen are being converted into pumping stations that will eventually transfer wastewater to the new works for treatment before discharge to the Cromarty Firth.
The 15-month project forms part of Scottish WaterвЂ™s '2010 Vision for the Highlands', a ВЈ200m investment campaign of improvements throughout the north of Scotland.
