Irish Water, in partnership with Cork County Council, will over see the official opening of Carrigtohill Wastewater Treatment Plant, followed by a tour of the upgraded treatment plant this morning.

Mr. David Stanton TD, Minister of State for Justice with special responsibility for Equality, Immigration and Integration will unveil a plaque to mark the €12.3 million investment in an extensive upgrade to Carrigtohill Wastewater Treatment Plant, which was overloaded and not able to accommodate future expansion. The new facility provides for significant additional capacity and will facilitate future industrial and housing developments in the area. The capacity of the treatment plant has been increased to cater for a population equivalent of 30,000 with facility for future expansion to 45,000 and 60,000 into the future.

As a result of this investment the plant is now treating waste from Carrigtohill as well as from other wastewater treatment works including Castlemartyr, Cloyne and Killeagh.
