Independent Deputy for Galway West, Noel Grealish has welcomed news that Galway County Council are now seeking tenders for the laying of the pipe network for the Claregalway and Milltown Sewerage Schemes.
‘Galway County Council hope to accept a tender in the next few months and work will commence on the laying of pipes in mid to late summer,’ said Deputy Grealish.
‘The Claregalway and Milltown Sewerage Schemes, are packaged as one contract document within the Department of the Environment as a Design Build Operate (DBO) Scheme and the publication of a request for tenders is a significant step forward,’ he said.
‘This is excellent news for the residents and business owners in Claregalway and brings them one step closer to a more efficient, environmentally friendly sewerage system that will reduce pollution and enhance water quality in the area.
‘Galway County Council have also informed me that they have sought approval from the Department of the Environment to issue tender documents for the construction of the treatment plant, which I hope will be approved by the Minister shortly.’
‘I am delighted that we are now reaching the final stages for these long awaited schemes,’ Deputy Grealish concluded.
