€15 Million Water Treatment Projects for Galway County Council

Galway County Council has received Government approval to invite tenders for the construction of a new water treatment plant, the construction of two new reservoirs at Rosmuc and Glenmore, Carraroe, together with the network and pipe-laying contract for the Costelloe Regional Water Supply Scheme.

The work is being funded under the Water Services Investment Programme 2010–2012, as two contracts to commence construction during the period of the programme at an estimated cost of over €15 million.

“My approval reflects the commitment in the programme for Government that our public drinking water supplies will deliver a reliable service that is 100% compliant with drinking water standards,” says Phil Hogan TD, Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government,” In this case, the proposed scheme will ensure that consumers in the Costelloe area will have a high quality water supply that will have capacity to meet current and future needs.”
