Works on Nenagh Water's Supply and Wastewater System will begin in July

I can confirm that major works on Nenagh's water supply and wastewater system will begin next month.

I announced in July last year that the contract for the new gas line into Nenagh had been signed at an investment of approximately €8.5 million. This new energy source will make Nenagh much more competitive for investment thereby creating and maintaining jobs. I expect the gas line to be turned on for Arrabawn Co-op in the coming weeks and then rolled out over 14 kilometres across the town. 

In October last year, I announced that Nenagh's water supply and wastewater system was also set for a major upgrade which will be completed alongside the gas project for the town.  I am well aware that there have been many problems with smells emanating around the town due to the antiquated waste water system.     Ervia, which is the parent company of Gas Networks Ireland and Irish Water are now combining both the gas and water/wastewater projects. The rehabilitation project in Nenagh to improve water and waste water systems will commence at the end of July and will take approximately twelve months to complete. This rehabilitation project will modernise the water/wastewater infrastructure and deal with all the issues I know many of residents in the town have had to face over the years. 

This is the very first time that Ervia; as a multi-utility company; will take a combined approach to deliver water and gas infrastructure in Ireland. Integrating both projects under the Ervia umbrella creates economies, will increase efficiencies and deliver direct cost savings to customers and the taxpayer, while minimising disruption to businesses and the local community
