Irish Water will today publish the Public Notice for the Compulsory Purchase Order to acquire the necessary lands, and wayleaves at Knocksruffaunavana, Carraroe for the development of a new wastewater treatment plant as part of the Carraroe Sewerage Sceheme.
The CPO will also be submitted to An Bord Pleanála.
Irish Water is working to end the unacceptable practice of discharging untreated wastewater into Casla Bay by developing a new wastewater treatment plant as part of the Carraroe Sewerage Scheme.
The new wastewater treatment plant will bring benefits to Carraroe in terms of health, integrity of the environment and improved water quality for all. Cleaner water will enhance Carraroe’s amenity value and act as a platform for social and economic development. The new pipes, pumping station and wastewater treatment plant have all been sized to accommodate an increase in the local population and will facilitate future growth in the area. The project will also ensure that the water quality standards set down by regulatory bodies will be achieved.
