Mayo County Council welcomes the €19m investment in the Killala, Foxford and Charlestown Sewerage Schemes, which will end the untreated discharge in Killala Bay and improve water quality in the Moy and Mullaghanoe rivers.

We are delighted that the funding is now available to bring these vital projects to construction, based on the initial planning and design work carried out by Mayo County Council over many years, and the subsequent detailed design work, which was completed in partnership with Irish Water.

Mayo County Council work to improve environmental compliance and growth prospects of the county through many projects, initiatives and schemes. These key projects will achieve our aims and strengthen the health, and growth prospects for the county.  We look forward to delivering this project, and to working in partnership with Irish Water and Glan Agua for its successful implementation.

‘We work in partnership with Irish Water to deliver water services across the county to improve and enhance the water quality for County Mayo, and the environmental standard of wastewater discharges. I very much welcome that this investment is being delivered for the towns of Killala, Foxford and Charlestown. We look forward to working on this project with Glan Agua from their base at the Cairn International Trade Centre, Kiltimagh’ says Peter Hynes Chief Executive of Mayo County Council.

Speaking of the project Cathaoirleach of Mayo County Council, Councillor Richard Finn says ‘I am delighted that the projects are coming to fruition for County Mayo, the three towns involved will see an ongoing positive effect on their socioeconomic growth and development.’
