Newport Sewerage Scheme
Irish Water is working to end the unacceptable practice of discharging untreated wastewater in Mayo
Irish Water is committed to ending the unacceptable practice of discharging raw sewage in Ireland by constructing wasterwater treatment plants and network infrastructure. We are working to ensure that wastewater is adequately treated and meets appropriate standards before being safely discharged into the marine environment.
- End the discharge of raw sewage
- Cleaner water enhances amenity
- Improve water quality for our marine life, angling and water sports
In Mayo, Irish Water has built new wastewater infrastructure in Belmullet and Kilala to provide appropirate treatment for over 7,000 people. We are also progressing plans for a new wastewater treatment plant in Newport to address the remaining raw sewage being discharged accross the county.
The building, repair and upgrading of Irish Water's water treatment plants, wastewater treatment plants, water and sewer network will require a multi-billion euro investment programme over many years. Irish Water is commited to improving wastewater treatment and capacity across the country.
