Pat the Cope Gallagher has welcomed the approval given by Minister Phil Hogan, Department of Environment to allow both the Dungloe and Glenties sewerage schemes to commence.
The total cost of both schemes is expected to be in the region of €5.4 million. These schemes will provide new wastewater treatment plants, pumping stations and sewers in Dungloe and Glenties to replace the present overloaded and obsolete infrastructure. The new works will facilitate existing and future residential and commercial development in the Dungloe and Glenties areas. In addition, the state of the art wastewater treatment plant, which will treat the wastewater in each location to the highest standards, will ensure that the local environment is enhanced and the good quality of the Dungloe and Owenea rivers is protected and improved.
Pat the Cope is confident that work on both schemes would commence within a matter of months.
