Minister McHugh turns sod on new Ardsbeg water treatment plant

(21 Feb 2017)

EPS welcomed Irish Water and Minister of State for the Diaspora and Overseas Development Aid, Joe McHugh TD to ‘turn the sod’ to mark at the official start of construction works at the new Ardsbeg water treatment plant yesterday. 

Local elected representatives, staff from Donegal County Council, Irish Water and project contractors joined Minister of State for the Diaspora and Overseas Aid, Joe Mc Hugh T.D. with Cllr. Terence Slowey, Cathaoirleach, Donegal County Council and David McLoone, Asset Management Lead, Irish Water at the sod-turning for the new water treatment plant in Ardsbeg.

EPS was recently awarded the contract for the design, build and operation of a new water treatment plant for Gortahork and Falcarragh in North Donegal.  This contract involves the construction of a new water treatment plant immediately adjacent to the existing facility. The new treatment plant will comprise a robust flocculation, coagulation and filtration process followed by disinfection. The plant will have a design output of 1,800m3/day.

Speaking at the launch, Minister McHugh said: "We cannot take for granted the importance of a safe and secure supply of water which this investment by Irish Water will provide for the people of North West Donegal. As well as being beneficial for current consumers, this new treatment plant will greatly benefit the future economic and population development of the area."

EPS is looking forward to working in partnership with Donegal county council and Irish Water on the project which has an expected completion date of late 2017.
