1600 people in Boyle area to benefit from €2.4m extension of Boyle Water Supply Scheme to Grangemore
*Senator Feighan officially opens €2.4m extension of the Boyle Water Supply Scheme to Grangemore
1600 people in the Boyle area will benefit from the €2.4m extension of the Boyle Water Supply Scheme to Grangemore, according to Senator Frank Feighan who officially opened the extension today.
“This significant infrastructure works will improve the quality of drinking water supplied to 1600 people in the Grangemore area.
“This €2.4m investment involved the provision of a new pumping station at Carrickmore and the upgrade of three reservoirs in Croghan, The Plains, and Ballymore. The works were carried out due to the combined efforts of Irish Water, Roscommon County Council, Source Civil, and Jennings O’Donovan.
“Access to fresh, clean water is often taken for granted and constrained by funding. The extension of the Boyle water supply to Grangemore and the decommissioning of the Cavetown Water Treatment Plant ensures drinking water quality and security of supply for households in Grangemore.
“Irish Water is to be commended for completing this work as part of its commitment to the people of Grangemore.
“The provision of clean drinking water and reliable wastewater service, in a manner that protects the natural environment, is critical to this region’s economic and social development.”
