Buncrana sewer network to be upgraded 27.08.20

IRISH Water is progressing plans to upgrade the wastewater infrastructure in Buncrana. The planning proposal for the Buncrana Sewerage Scheme includes an upgrade to the sewer network and pumping station. These upgrades will address capacity deficiencies and also reduce the risk of sewer flooding and storm overflows.
The completed project will also allow for social and economic growth in the surrounding areas and ensure the treatment of wastewater is fully compliant with current legislation.
The planning application for Buncrana, which will be submitted shortly, will include provision of storm water storage at the Westbrook Pumping Station and an upgrade to parts of the sewer network to increase its capacity.

Works will take place at the following locations:
• Cahir O‘Doherty Avenue
• Aileach Road
• Railway Road
• Cockhill Road
• Westbrook Pumping Station

Speaking about the planning proposal Eunan Canavan, from Irish Water, said: “Buncrana will benefit hugely from these wastewater scheme improvements. Sewer flooding during heavy rainfall will be significantly reduced, which will improve water quality in the receiving environment. The upgrades will increase capacity of the current sewer networks and will allow for population growth and development in Buncrana and its surrounding areas.”
