€9m Wastewater Treatment Plant To Be Built In Co Mayo

Construction work is to begin on Tuesday, 12 July, and is expected to take 18 months to complete.

The scheme will ensure that wastewater is treated and discharged in compliance with the Urban Wastewater Treatment Regulations 2001, and conditions as set out in the Environment Protection Agency's Wastewater Discharge Licence (WWDL). The project will also improve the water quality of nearby coastal areas, protecting bathing areas and the aquatic environment from pollution.

Irish Water has confirmed that works will commence on School Road and Sea Road on Tuesday, 12 July. The School Road works are expected to last for approximately eight weeks and will involve a temporary road diversion where traffic will be diverted along Chapel Street and Quay Street. While the Sea Road works are expected to last approximately 10 weeks and a temporary road diversion will be in place diverting traffic along Blacksod Road and Ballyglass Road.

During the works local access will be maintained to try to minimise disruption.
