Work is to start on the upgrade of Athenry Wastewater Treatment Plant.
The works when complete will ensure that the waste water discharged from the plant to the river Clarin is compliant with the discharge licence and environmental regulations.
The capacity of the treatment plant will increase from its current 6,000 population equivalent to 9,500 ensuring increased capacity to facilitate future population growth and commercial development in Athenry.
The works will be complete in early 2019.
