Planning Lodged For Kilrush Wastewater Treatment Plant

Permission is being sought for the construction of a new wastewater treatment plant in Kilrush.

The planned development would be positioned adjacent to the existing wastewater tidal outfall tank at Skagh Point.

Irish Water says it would put a stop to the discharge of the equivalent of 5,700 wheelie bins of sewage into the Shannon Estuary every day.


Should it be given the green light by Clare County Council, it would have an expected completion date of 2021.
