Dail Eireann Debate Vol. 210 No. 9 – Written Answers – Untreated Sewage

Thursday, 14 December 1978

Mr. Donnellan and Mr. Mannion asked the Minister for the Environment if he is aware that untreated sewage is being discharged into Kinvara Bay, County Galway; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

Minister for the Environment (Mr. Barrett):

” I understand that disposal of sewage from Kinvara is by outfall pipe to the sea at Kinvara Bay. I have received no complaints about the discharge. It would be a matter for Galway County Council to investigate any such complaints and, if remedial works were found to be necessary, to arrange for the preparation of a suitable scheme.”
