Work on the upgrade of the Wastewater Treatement Plant in Ardee is getting underway this month and with the project also including the upgrade of sewer networks across the town, the first of several in-town disruptions will begin this coming Monday.
Works are set to commence on Monday October 23rd on Tierney Street, with Irish Water expecting works there to take approximately three weeks to complete.
The Tierney Street work will take place between 7pm and 6am nightly in order to minimise traffic disruption, with a stop/go traffic system in place. Local access will be maintained at all times.
The upgrade works will be carried out by Wills Bros Limited and EPS working on behalf of Irish Water and Louth County Council. If you would like further information or have a complaint regarding the works, you can contact the project team on 087 2913280.
€7.5 million is being spent on the upgrade to the Ardee Wastewater Treatment Plant which will also include an upgrade to the Irish Street Wastewater Pumping Station and the designing and building of sewer network upgrades in the town.
Irish Water say the upgrade will see the capacity of the plant raised from 5,000pe to 10,000pe – which should more than faciliate the current usage and water flow in the town. The 10,000 population equivalent figure is higher than the previously thought 8,000pe upgrade. The entire upgrade will take approximately 18 months to complete.
