Oughterard Wastewater Treatment Plant

Wastewater Project

This investment of €4.2 million has provided improvements to the wastewater infrastructure of Co. Galway.

This project involved the construction of a new wastewater treatment plant on a green field site adjacent to the original treatment facility. The original wastewater treatment plant was first constructed in the early 1970’s and currently caters for a population equivalent (PE) of 500. This project has increased the current treatment capacity of the plant and facilitates future growth in population and economic development in the area. The upgraded plant caters for a population equivalent (PE) of 2,400.
