Irish Water Wait for Government Sign Off to Begin Work on Arklow Water Treatment Plant

Irish Water is waiting for the go ahead from government to begin construction next year on the long awaited Arklow Wastewater Treatment Plant.

It’s been decades since the project was first proposed, but the land has now been acquired and planning permission has been granted for the facility, which is expected to take around three years to complete.
