Welcome investment in Gort Water Treatment Plant
I welcome the announcement by Irish Water that they are to carry out upgrade works to Gort Regional Supply Scheme.
The investment is part of a €1.54 million project that includes upgrades to Gort & Spiddal Schemes.
The upgrade will be carried out by Coffey Water Limited. Work is expected to commence in the coming weeks and will be completed by the end of September.
The works will provide a more advanced treatment process to help mitigate against various contaminants and improve the quality of water supplied. The upgrade will also provide a robust measure in alleviating the risk of cryptosporidium to the water supply.
This is good news for Gort in Galway East and will ensure a better quality of water for the area.
