Water treatment plant work in Ballina to begin in September

Phyll Bugler, a local councillor said that they had been campaigning to Irish water to begin upgrades sooner but it has now been a year and they are still waiting on a reply to their letters.

She also said that it is positive sign that tenders for this project are going to begin next week and hopefully they will be able to connect people to the system by the end of 2022.

“Obviously the ones who have planning permissions will be connected first, and when they open the plant in September 2022 we will be able to see is there any extra capacity that we can connect some of those people.”
