Independent Deputy for Galway West, Noel Grealish has welcomed news that Phase 2 of the Claregalway and Milltown Sewerage Schemes have been given approval to proceed to construction by Irish Water.

‘This phase of the Claregalway Sewerage Scheme involves the Design Build and Operate (DBO) of the new treatment plant for the village and contract has been awarded to the EPS Group from Cork.’

‘The pipework for the new sewerage treatment plant in the village was completed in 2013 and the approval to proceed to construction of the treatment plant will be welcome news for the businesses and residents of Claregalway.’

‘When the new treatment plant is open it will mean that the eight independent treatment plants currently in operation in the village can be decommissioned and it is also hoped that the new treatment plant will reduce pollution and enhance water quality in the area.’

‘The total cost of the new treatment plants for Claregalway and Milltown is €10 million and I look forward to work commencing shortly,’ concluded Deputy Grealish.
