Donegal councillor welcomes advancement made on Burtonport sewage scheme

Sinn Féin Councillor Marie Therese Gallagher has welcomed news that the Burtonport Sewage Scheme has taken a step forward.

She said: "Irish Water has today published a compulsory purchase order for lands required for the Burtonport Sewage Scheme.This scheme is an essential piece of infrastructure for the future development of Burtonport."

She added that the recent announcement is a step forward for this scheme and called on Irish Water to engage positively with the Community in Burtonport through this process.

"I will also be in contact with Donegal County Council to ensure that the proposed scheme allows connection for both council housing estates in Burtonport,  'Altan' and 'An Choill' as tenants in both these estates have been left with waste water treatment system that do not function," she said. 

"I have continuously raised the need for a sewage scheme for Burtonport over the years, and will continue to do so until this essential piece of infrastructure is delivered."
