€6M Greencastle water upgrade complete

first_imgA vital upgrade to the Greencastle public water supply is now complete, Irish Water has confirmed.The project, which involved a €6 million investment from Irish Water, has altered the treatment of water from the Eddie Fullerton Pollan Dam to ensure better quality for the people of Greencastle.The Greencastle water treatment plant will be decommissioned and water from the Eddie Fullerton Pollan Dam will now l be treated at the Illies Water Treatment Plant before being delivered into the network supplying Greencastle and East Inishowen. The change will deliver better quality and a more reliable supply of water to the Greencastle supply, which is currently on the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Remedial Action List (RAL) for elevated levels of trihalomethanes (THMs).Diane Carroll, Irish Water explained further the scope of the project: “The upgraded water supply scheme will safeguard the water supply to homes and businesses currently served by the existing Greencastle Water Treatment Plant. The supply from this plant will be replaced by the supply from the East Inishowen Regional Water Supply Scheme (RWSS). This has been enabled by an extension of the Pollan RWSS to East Inishowen, allowing the East Inishowen RWSS to now supply Greencastle.“The scope of works completed included the laying of over 10km of new water main, the construction of a new reservoir and associated booster station. This transfer of supply from the Greencastle Water Treatment plant to the Illies Water Treatment Plant will provide a more robust treatment system.” €6M Greencastle water upgrade complete was last modified: November 21st, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img
