Mountcharles Sewerage Scheme

Uisce Éireann is progressing to upgrade Mountcharles Sewerage Scheme, Co. Donegal.

Uisce Éireann, working in partnership with Donegal County Council, is progressing with works to upgrade Mountcharles Sewerage Scheme.

The €9 million investment will improve the capacity of the sewer network allowing for current and future population growth and supporting the social and economic development of Mountcharles and the surrounding area. The current wastewater treatment plant is being served by infrastructure that is overloaded and can perform poorly.

Once completed, this project will improve the drinking water quality, while also complying with the current Drinking Water Regulations. Furthermore, it will deliver additional capacity and ensure that wastewater is treated to a standard that protects the environment and complies with regulatory requirements. The new plant will serve a population equivalent of 725 people.
