Minister Norma Foley visited Fenit on June 21st to welcome the announcement of the new waste water treatment plant for the area. Locals and Councillors have been calling for years for an upgrade to the waste water treatment works and Irish Water representatives announced the funding during the monthly meeting of Kerry County Council.
Irish Water is working in partnership with Kerry County Council to support growth and development throughout the county, while protecting the environment and safeguarding water supplies. Irish Water is investing €5.2 billion in the period from 2020-2024 in drinking water and wastewater quality and capacity and new infrastructure. The Draft Capital Investment Plan is subject to consultation and final determination by the Commission for the Regulation of Utilities. This process is ongoing, and following its completion and with the approval of the Regulator, updated details of the planned investments will be outlined over the coming months. The project will then continue through the next stages including design, planning, procurement and approvals.
