Clare County Council has formally opened two water services schemes with a combined cost of Eur7 million in the towns of Corofin and Tulla. The schemes consist of new wastewater treatment plants in addition to new and upgraded water supply and storm water infrastructure.
The schemes, which were part funded under the Water Services Investment Programme, are just two of an extensive number of projects delivered by the Water Services Capital Projects section of Clare County Council particularly during the past four to five years.
Speaking about the work on over 10 projects, and 20 contracts completed in this period was particularly appreciative of the commitment by the staff of the water services section.
“In the period from 2006 to 2010 the Water Services Capital Projects team will have project managed contracts to the value of Eur45 million, peaking at over Eur20 million in 2008, thanks to the committed diligence of the engineering and administrative staff,” comments David Timlin, director of services, Clare County Council.”Although the rate of spend is reducing relative to recent years, the Council will still spend Eur7 million in 2011, including upgrades to Ennis & Shannon Main Drainage schemes as well as rehabilitation contracts on the Ennis Water Network.”
