IRISH Water is holding
an information evening at the Foyle Hotel Moville on
Monday, November 26th from 5.30pm - 7.30pm to present
plans for the Moville Sewerage Scheme.
Irish Water is working to end the unacceptable
practice of discharging untreated wastewater into
Lough Foyle and the Bredagh River by developing a
sewerage scheme for Moville.
The public are invited to attend the information
evening to meet the project team and learn more
about Irish Water’s plans to progress this important
Untreated effluent is currently being discharged
into the Bredagh River and Lough Foyle at five
locations in Moville. Moville is one of the areas
the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) identified
as having no treatment. The EPA has also highlighted
the untreated discharges as a significant pressure
causing pollution in the Bredagh River. The
discharge of untreated wastewater threatens water
quality, the environment and detracts from the
amenity value of the river and the coastal waters
around Moville and environs. A new wastewater
treatment plant and collection system is needed to
end this practice.
Irish Water expects to submit a planning application
to Donegal County Council next year. It is envisaged
that planning, design and construction will take
approximately 4 years and will be undertaken between
2019 and 2022 (subject to statutory approvals).
Anyone interested in receiving further information
or in asking questions about this project are
invited to attend the information evening.
