Roscommon Gets A Huge Boost For Its Rural Water Supplies.
Updated : Feb 26, 2009
Improvements to the rural water supplies in County Roscommon have been given a huge €8.6 million boost this week. Minister Michael Finneran TD has announced the €8.6million plan allocation from his Department to Roscommon County Council under the 2009 Rural Water Programme. This allocation for rural water will fund improvements to group water supplies and small public water and sewerage schemes throughout the county.
The Minister confirmed that the bulk of the 2009 funding, €7.55m, was earmarked for eight new plants that would provide water treatment for 22 group schemes and one small public supply which, together, served over 2,000 households.
Minister Finnerran said the tenders for the treatment plants, the largest project of its kind in the county, were being examined by Roscommon County Council and that the funding provided would allow a single contract covering all eight plants to be signed as soon as the tenders had been assessed and approved.
