In Progress


  • The new Wastewater Treatment Plant will bring benefits to Spiddal in terms of health, integrity of the environment and improved water quality for all
  • The proposed Wastewater Treatment Plant will improve the water quality in the receiving waters of Galway Bay
  • Cleaner water will enhance Spiddal’s amenity value and act as a platform for social and economic development
  • The new pipes, pumping station and wastewater treatment plant have all been sized to accommodate an increase in the local population and will facilitate future growth in the area
  • The project will assist with ensuring that the water quality standards set down by regulatory bodies will be achieved


  • Construction of a new wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) that will serve a population equivalent of 1000 which equates to stopping over 600 wheelie bins of raw sewage being discharged to Galway Bay per day
  • A new below-ground pumping station including pumps, mechanical plant and a storm water storage tank
  • Sewer pipelines to bring untreated wastewater to the WWTP and treated water to the outfall pipeline
  • A new outfall pipeline to discharge treated wastewater from the new WWTP to the existing marine outfall
  • This project is currently in the design and pre-planning stage
