Further Development In Plans For Waste Water Treatment Plant For Arklow

Irish Water has been granted the foreshore lease and licence to develop the long awaited Arklow Waste Water Treatment Plant.

The move will now enable the project team to progress with the construction of the outfall pipe in the bay and the intake pipe crossing the Avoca River. Construction is due to start on the plant next year with works expected to finish in 2024.

Once complete, it’s expected over 15,000 people in the town will be connected to the new scheme. Wicklow Senator Pat Casey has welcomed the announcement, saying it’s a key stage in the delivery of the infrastructure needed for the plant.
