Upgrade to water treatment plant in Lettermacaward

Irish Water has announced it has signed the construction contract to upgrade Lettermacaward Water Treatment Plant in County Donegal.

Irish Water is investing €12 million in the work.

EPS has signed the contract and will work on behalf of Irish Water to deliver this project.

Works on the project are expected to start in the coming months and will take approximately 24 months to complete.

John McElwaine, Asset Delivery Regional Lead with Irish Water, said the project will involve an upgrade to the existing water treatment plant at the Lettermacaward site as well as increasing water storage on site.

The construction of a new water main from Derkmore Lough to the water treatment plant is also another element of this project.

Improvements to the network are also being undertaken with the construction of two network booster pumping stations which will serve the Portnoo, Rosbeg, Drimlaghdrid, Derrydruel and Maghery areas.
