Senator Frank Feighan is welcoming a sod-turning event to mark the start of construction on the extension of the Lough Mask Water Supply Scheme to Ballinlough and Williamstown.
“This project involves a €10 million investment by Irish Water. Both the Ballinlough and Williamstown water supplies are on the EPA’s Remedial Action List while the Ballinlough scheme has been on a boil water notice since January 2016.
“The extension of the Lough Mask water supply to these two areas will ensure a clean and secure supply of water for the 5,000 consumers on the two supplies and allow the removal of the Ballinlough consumers from the boil water notice.
“The sod-turning event takes place on Monday, April 24th at the The Friary, Abbey Street, Friarsground in Ballyhaunis.”
