During his Scottish tour, Fleming visited the Tay Wastewater project which is under construction on the site of a disused, wartime airfield at Hatton, on the coast between Carnoustie and Arbroath. The £84M scheme is being built to a 27month fixed price lump sum contract under a 30-year concession agreement between North of Scotland Water Authority and Bechtel-Morrison. It will collect the wastewater from the existing outfalls in the Tay, between Invergowrie and Arbroath, pump it to the Hatton works for treatment, before discharging it into the North Sea via a 1.6km long outfall. Visitors saw one of the four, 41m diameter final settlement tanks being assembled from precast concrete units, using a mobile crane. The presidential party is pictured at the plant.
