Cork Lower Harbour Main Drainage Project
In 2015, the equivalent of 40,000 wheelie bins of raw sewage was discharged into Cork Harbour every day. We’ve reduced this figure to 20,000 by building a wastewater treatment plant in Shanbally as well as repairing and extending the sewer network to connect more harbour areas to the plant. Irish Water are moving a step closer to our goal of treating the remaining 20,000 wheelie bins of sewage by awarding the Cobh to Monkstown Estuary Crossing Contract.
