Scottish Water (SW) hosted two drop-in events last week, on the Shore and in Toward.
They were hoping to engage with local residents to inform them of the upcoming upgrade to the existing sewer network.
The work is part of a £5m investment in the sewer network across the Firth of Clyde over the next 12 months.
A PACKED public meeting agreed to give health chiefs a chance to consider proposals to safeguard the future of a threatened Dunoon care home. Around 100 attended the Monday meeting, organised by Dunoon Community Council, at Dunoon Grammar School.
Speakers Kenneth Matheson of Dunoon Community Council, Michael Russell MSP and Max Barr of Struan Lodge Development Group spoke to plans to save the valued facility, and urged the community to give the health board a chance to consider proposals laid out by Mr Barr.
