Kinvara will have a world-class sewerage treatment plant when construction on the new facility is completed in early 2017.
That’s according to Irish Water, who have today signed a contract for the long-awaited facility at the Merriman Hotel, Kinvara. It concludes decades of campaigning for a new plant to tackle raw sewerage in Kinvara Bay.
The utility is investing 5 million euro to construct the new plant and upgrade the towns sewer network. The new plant will be located at Ballybranagan and Irish Water says its design, now entering its final stages, will allow for future population growth and tourist numbers.
Over the next two weeks, Irish Water will host meetings and community groups to address local concerns over the 14 month project.
Speaking to Galway Bay fm news at this morning’s contract signing, Environment Minister Alan Kelly says he looks forward to people swimming in Kinvara Bay once more.
