Residents of Roundstone in Connemara will benefit from a new wastewater treatment plant, which will end the discharge of the equivalent of 645 wheelie bins of raw sewage into Roundstone Bay every day.

That's according to Irish Water, which is working with Galway County Council to progress plans to build a new wastewater treatment plant to serve a population of about 1,000 people.

Irish Water has published a compulsory purchase order for the lands required to deliver the new scheme, and says it will end the unacceptable practice of discharging raw sewage into Roundstone Bay, and will allow for the growth and development of Roundstone and surrounding areas.

Planning permission will also be sought from Galway County Council, and the timeline for commencing work on the project is subject to the CPO and planning approvals.
