Irish Water submit plans for €80m Ringsend plant upgrade
Irish Water has submitted planning permission for an €80 million upgrade of the Ringsend wastewater treatment plant as part of an ongoing €400 million investment in the south Dublin plant.Jean Hobbs, Irish Water project manager for the upgrade, said it had taken “a number of years” to get to this stage.The plant is “overloaded at the moment,” and is treating around 40 per cent of Ireland’s sewage, mainly from the wider Dublin area.The plans were submitted to An Bord Pleanála on Wednesday. There will be a seven week public consultation where people can make submissions on the proposal.
