Irish Water has been granted a foreshore licence by the Minister for Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government. The licence is for marine site investigation works to progress the development of the Arklow Wastewater Treatment Plant (WwTP).

The marine site investigation works has recently been completed in Arklow Bay and the estuary of the Avoca River. The information gathered from the completed works will enable the team to progress with the preliminary design of the proposed marine outfall pipe in the bay and the intake pipe crossing the Avoca River. The works included archaeological surveys, ecological surveys and geotechnical surveys.
