Works at Ballyhooly water plant near completion

Residents from Ballyhooly fill up their water supply from a tanker in the village.

Irish Water has confirmed that upgrade works on the Ballyhooly water scheme are still ongoing, with an expected completion date of July 30.

According to a report issued by the EPA last week, these works should have concluded in April.

The inadequate treatment of Cryptosporidium in the area ensured that the Ballyhooly scheme made its way onto the EPA’s ‘Remedial Action List’ for 2019.

To remove the water scheme from this list, the water treatment plant serving the area needed to be upgraded.
