  • Where is the long promised public sewerage treatment plant for Knockmore?, is the question being asked by a number of local residents in the north Mayo village who are listeners to Midwest News.

    Listeners say they are concerned that a new local authority estate, with 12 housing units now at roof stage, are being built almost on the shore of Lough Conn and there is no sign of the building of a public sewerage treatment plant.

    In 2008 the village of Knockmore was promised this vital piece of infrastructure, yet a decade later, they claim there is no sign of its delivery.

    Listeners point out, that prior to the building of the new local authority estate, there was already severe pressure on sewerage disposal in the village coping with a major new community centre and developments in the GAA pitch, together with local pubs and a shop, together with other houses.

    Local Fine Gael councillor Seamus Weir has continuously raised the need for a public sewerage treatment plant for Knockmore at meetings of Ballina Municipal District, but he told Midwest News that so far all his attempts have fallen on deaf ears.

    He says a percolation system will be installed for the 12 house new development, but believes a public sewerage treatment plant is the only way forward. He says advanced plans for a treatment plant are in place since 2010 and a potential site has been identified, but to date no application has been submitted by Mayo county council to Irish Water for the development.
