Sewerage Schemes

  • Irish Water in reminding householders in The Neale, Cross and Breaffy that the deadline is running out for the €1,000 connection fee.

    The new schemes are expected to go live shortly, and an incentivised offer of a €1,000 euro connection fee per house runs out on the 31st March.

    After that date, the cost per house will increase to €3,900.

  • Irish Water, in partnership with Mayo County Council, is starting construction works  for new wastewater treatment facilities at Foxford, Killala and Charlestown.

    A total investment of €19 million is being invested to achieve environmental compliance and provide for the existing population and future needs of the towns.

    The Killala Sewerage Scheme will stop untreated wastewater being discharged directly into Killala Bay.

    The Foxford and Charlestown sewerage schemes will provide new and upgraded treatment plants for both towns to meet the current populations and will provide for future growth in the areas.

    Any businesses from Killala Foxford or Charlestown interested  in receiving further information about these three projects are invited to attend an  information hour  in the theatre at the Foxford Woollen Mills.

    The Information Hour takes place in the Foxford Woollen Mills between 12:30 and 13:30 tomorrow afternoon at the Foxford Woollen Mills Theatre


  • As both the Killala and Foxford new sewerage schemes are now in the construction phase, an information morning on the new Killala scheme takes place in the local community centre on Friday morning next, May 10th and in Friday afternoon in the Mill in Foxford.

    Irish Water is keen to provide the public with any information or updates on both schemes.

    Foxford based fine Gael councillor Neil Cruse  is encouraging anyone with questions to attend.
