  • After a campaign lasting some 33 years and “many false dawns” the Government has approved a €139 million wastewater treatment plant for Arklow in Co Wicklow.
  • Retired county cllr Nancy Quinn recalled on Tuesday that primary treatment for the towns sewage had been proposed when she was on the council in the 1980s.
  • Irish Water will now build the treatment plant early next year near the original site proposed in 1988, on the north docks at the old Wallboard site at Ferrycarrig.
