Public information evening on new sewerage scheme in Kilcummin
New scheme will have major benefits for the local environment
Irish Water in partnership with Kerry County Council is progressing the delivery of new sewerage scheme for the village of Kilcummin. The new sewerage scheme for the village of Kilcummin, Co Kerry will have major benefits for the local environment and help to facilitate future development in the area.
Investment of €3 million
This project represents an investment of €3 million. It will involve the construction of a new pumping station and the additional infrastructure needed to connect Kilcummin to the Killarney town wastewater network to facilitate treatment at the town plant.
Information evening will take place at Kilcummin GAA Club
We are inviting members of the local community to a ‘drop-in’ information evening to learn more about the next phase of this project. The information evening will take place at Kilcummin GAA Club 5:30pm – 7:00 pm on Wednesday April 3rd.
Improving quality of groundwater and quality of water
Kilcummin is located in an area of great natural beauty, close to the River Deenagh which flows into Lough Leane and forms part of the Killarney National Park. This project will ensure that the local environment is protected by improving the quality of groundwater and facilitating an improvement in the quality of water in the River Deenagh and Lough Leane. It will also provide capacity for some growth within the area.
