Irish Water says work is progressing on a major new sewerage scheme in Donegal.

In a statement to Ocean FM New this week, the utility has also apologised to some residents who are being inconvienced by the work.

The Donegal Group B project includes the development of new sewerage schemes in Killybegs, Bundoran, Glencolmcille and Convoy.

It’s part of the €70 million investment by Irish Water to wastewater infrastructure in Co Donegal.

Earlier this week, some residents at the Crest of the Wave estate in Bundoran were concerned that roads had been closed in their estate without being notified.

Sinn Fein activist in the town Mick McMahon said there needed to be more communication with residents.

Irish Water says it will continue to liaise with the Main Contractor Veolia Water to ensure that every effort is made to minimise any impact on the residents of Crest of the Wave housing estate.

The Project Team will update local residents in advance of any further works in the vicinity of Crest of the Wave.

Irish Water would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused to residents during these works.
