Our Lady’s Isalnd hasn’t a prayer of get­ting sew­er­age plant link

Wexford People - - NEWS -

DE­SPITE vo­cif­er­ous ap­peals by lo­cal coun­cil­lor Ger Carthy Our Lady’s Is­land doesn’t have a prayer of hav­ing its sew­er­age needs met by Ir­ish Wa­ter in the fore­see­able fu­ture.

Cllr Carthy asked if the Our Lady’s Is­land sewage could be treated in the same sys­tem as sewage from Ross­lare is treated in.

Di­rec­tor of Ser­vices Eamonn Hore said: ‘At dif­fer­ent points in the past there were dis­cus­sions about Our Lady’s Is­land but it is not on Ir­ish Wa­ter’s agenda any­where for the Lady’s Is­land area to be linked with Ross­lare Har­bour.’

Plans have been ad­vanced by Ir­ish Wa­ter for the Dun­can­non, Arthurstown and Bal­ly­hack area, the plant be­ing one of 21 ag­glom­er­a­tions lo­cated in coun­ties Clare, Cork, Done­gal, Gal­way and Wex­ford. Ir­ish Wa­ter has now ap­pointed en­gi­neer­ing ser­vice providers to un­der­take de­tailed de­sign, plan­ning and pro­cure­ment ser­vices of the waste­water in­fras­truc­ture re­quire­ments for these ar­eas, but Our Lady’s Is­land is not on the planned sched­ule of works.
