I am adamant that if County Galway is to develop properly Irish Water need to begin the process of developing a wastewater Treatment plant for the East of the county.
A report prepared by An Taisce on pollution in Galway Bay has concluded that the existing Waste Water Treatment plant on Mutton Island does not have sufficient capacity to treat the waste water within the city.
“If we are to develop the Ardaun Corridor Irish Water need to commence the development of the pant for the east of the county as a matter of urgency”.
“We cannot continue to talk about industrial and residential development between the city and Athenry if we have not developed basic infrastructure”.
“Galway City and county have to potential to develop as a counterbalance to the over development in Dublin, but we need to plan the infrastructure which is a basic necessity to grow the region”.
