Ten households not connected to new Lough Talt water treatment plant

There are calls for ten households around Lough Talt in south Sligo to be supplied from the new €10m water treatment plant that has just started operation in the area.

The households are not connected to the current system and are on opposite — and higher side — of the lake to where the new plant is located, which means the water would have to be pumped up to them.

Local Fine Gael Councillor Martin Connolly says the households are at present taking their water directly, untreated, from the lake.
