Progress on Athenry Water Treatment Plant
I have received confirmation that the plant upgrade contract for Athenry waste water treatment plant is progressing well. The project is on schedule with the expected completion date of mid-2019.
The pipe network project is also progressing with a site investigation contractor appointed to undertake extensive site investigation along the routes of the various sewers proposed. The information from the site investigation contract will facilitate the detailed design of the network contract.
The sewerage upgrade is vital to facilitate the demand for sewerage connections in Athenry. The project, when complete, will allow for existing housing estates to be connected to the public system, thus eliminating the necessity for the many small individual plants presently serving these estates. I will continue to monitor progress of these works in Athenry.
