IRISH Water has said that upgrading work on the waste water treatment plant in Castletown will begin in the coming months, “once the final statutory approvals are in place”. They are expected to be completed by 2021.
The work, which will cost in the region of €175,000, is being carried out in partnership with Laois County Council.
Peter Flood from Irish Water said: “As the majority of the works will be carried out within the plant, Irish Water will be able to minimise disruption to residents and businesses in the surrounding area.”
The work will include upgrades to the inlet works, storm water management and sludge treatment and storage.
