The Arthurstown, Ballyhack and Duncannon Sewerage Scheme was officially opened by An Cathaoirleach of Wexford County Council, Cllr George Lawlor and Minister Darragh O’Brien TD.
AtkinsRéalis provided site supervision for this scheme working along the employer’s representative during construction. The opening was attended by AtkinsRéalis Ireland personnel Pat Somerville, Mechanical and Electrical Engineer; Brendan Power, Resident Engineer; Shane O’Neill, Resident Engineer; and Tom O’Sullivan, Senior Resident Engineer.
The €15.6 million investment by Uisce Éireann involved the construction of a new, state-of-the-art wastewater treatment plant in Arthurstown, three new pumping stations and new sewer pipelines which will also serve the nearby villages of Ballyhack and Duncannon.
“I am delighted to be here today to witness the opening of the treatment plant and sewage scheme for the three local communities” said An Cathaoirleach of Wexford County Council, Cllr George Lawlor, “The new infrastructure will lead to enhanced tourism opportunities for this beautiful part of the sunny South East.”
