Jackie Baillie has welcomed news that the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency will be working to improve the water quality at Luss.
Working with Argyll and Bute Council, Luss Estates, the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park Authority, Scottish Water, local businesses and residents, the agency will focus on improving the water quality at the popular lochside village.
This comes after a report which has seen the highest ever number of areas of Scottish water classified as ‘excellent’.
Jackie Baillie, Dumbarton constituency MSP, right, said: “With the waters of Luss Bay being classed as ‘sufficient’ during the recent classification, I welcome the investment by SEPA, in partnership with local agencies, residents and business owners in the area to improve upon this.
“The village of Luss is an important part of the local tourism economy within the Loch Lomond area and it should be well maintained.
“I look forward to also finding out more about the steps which will be taken by the National Park as we head into the tourist season next year to prevent the dangerous use of jet-skis close to the shore where many people enjoy swimming.”
