Finish line in sight for €13m Athenry project

Information below is relevant until further updates are provided here or on our Supply and Service Updates section.

A landmark project to overhaul Athenry's wastewater infrastructure is nearing completion as the project nears its final stages. 

Due for completion in the Autumn, the €13m Athenry Sewerage Scheme Network Upgrade will deliver a plethora of benefits for the local community. 

With one eye on the finish line, Uisce Éireann's Programme Manager Colm Claffey noted that the project will address non-compliant overflows into the River Clarin and sewer flooding in the town, whilst also enhancing the overall capacity and operational efficiency of the town's sewer system.

"This new wastewater infrastructure will meet the needs of homes and businesses, while providing capacity for current and future growth and development in Athenry," he said. 

The upgrade has made significant progress with extensive upgrades spanning over four kilometres of pipeline across key locations in Athenry, including L3103 (Raheen Woods Road), Gort Mhaoillir, Court Lane, Caheroyne Road and Bridge St among others. 

All works have been completed, save the completion of permanent road surfacing. These final works will be completed over the summer months to minimise disruptions. 

This vital project streamlines the collection and transportation of sewage for treatment, ensuring compliance with environmental standards. Additionally, a new pumping station at Pairc na hAbhainn has been built, commissioned, and connected to the existing wastewater treatment plant. 

Coffey Construction Ltd is delivering the works on behalf of Uisce Éireann and we will continue to update the local community in Athenry as this project nears completion.
