    Waste Water Treatment Plants in Grange, Tubbercurry, Ballinafad and Strandhill

    Please find below correspondence from Irish Water re’ my motion dated 4th JULY requesting a status upgrade of the position in relation to the Waste Water Treatment Plants in Grange, Tubbercurry, Ballinafad and Strandhill.

    Since becoming a Councillor in 2014 I have regularly requested updates and investment in the upgrade of these treatment plants in particular Grange Waste Water Treatment Plant. The upgrade of Grange Waste Water Treatment Plant in particular has been due to take place for many years including periods from the mid 2000s when significant central government funds were available to carry out the work, but the urgent upgrades did not take place then.

    In 2015, following a request for progress details, Irish Water informed me that the upgrades would take place in early 2016. In the most recent correspondence from Irish Water (attached) they now state that these works will take place in early 2017. I will continue to keep the pressure on until these works are carried out.
    I have once again proposed a motion for the September meeting of Sligo Council Council to continue this pressure to have these necessary works carried out by Irish Water.
    Motion for September Meeting:

    ‘That Sligo Co Co call on Irish Water to ensure that local tanks and treatment plants in Grange, Cliffoney and Mullaghmore be desludged regularly into the waste-water sludge treatment facility at Sligo Wastewater Treatment Plant. And to call on Irish Water to provide a definitive timeline for the upgrading of the Waste Water Treatment Plants at Grange, Strandhill, Tubbercurry and Ballinafad.’
