Work Continues To Provide Arklow With Wastewater Treatment Plant

Irish Water is moving forward with works on the Arklow Wastewater Treatment Plant and has submitted an application to the Minister for Housing Planning and Local Government for a foreshore licence to develop the project.


Irish Water says it’s determined to bring to an end the practice of discharging raw sewage directly into the Avoca River, as soon as possible.

With over 15,000 people set to be connected to the new treatment plant when it’s up and running the company says the project is vital in terms of protecting the environment, and facilitating economic development in Arklow..
