Roscommon Town Sewerage Scheme

Wastewater Project

This €16.3 million investment is needed to address the sewerage network in Roscommon Town which has experienced increased storm water overflows and pollution events in recent years.

The existing sewerage network currently collects and combines both surface water and wastewater which results in high volumes of both surface water and wastewater entering the system and being treated.
