Minister Hogan will be in Ballyconnell today.

The completion of a €2m investment in water infrastructure in Ballyconnell will be marked at a ceremony in Ballyconnell today.

Minister Phil Hogan will officially open a new water treatment plant and reservoir in the town and will inspect a further ongoing contract to completely upgrade the town’s water collection network.

According to Cllr. Val Smith:

“This project is complemented by a further investment in the town’s water collection network and will position Ballyconnell well for economic and social development in the future. The completion of these projects as well as the town’s new inner relief road, the nearby Belturbet by-pass and the new 'Cavan-Burren' Tourism Facility represent a major investment programme in West Cavan.”

The contract was completed by Glangua Limited and provides facilities to abstract pump and treat water. It will provide extensive storage and provide development capacity for the town in the future.

Welcoming this project Cllr. Smith also refers to significant investment in Cavan town.

“2014 sees new changes in how our water services are managed. Irish Water is charged with providing a world class water service for our country. Their commencement this month of a €20m Waste Water treatment plant and network contract for Cavan town is a hugely significant development for our county. Furthermore their establishment of a Regional office in Cavan shows tremendous faith in what Cavan has to offer to their organisation”.
