It has been announced that design proposals for the Millstreet Wastewater Treatment Plant upgrade have been approved at Government level, and that Cork County Council will now proceed with preparing contract documents with a view to seeking tenders as soon as possible. The contract is estimated at a cost of €4.1, and it is expected that it will make the Millstreet plant compliant with the Urban Wastewater Treatment Directive.
The upgrade was called for in a 2010 survey on all urban treatment plants in the country. The following measures needed to be completed:
- Increase capacity of treatment plant (2015+)
- Provide tertiary treatment or relocate outfall (2015+)
- Provide nutrient removal or relocate outfall
