Denis Naughten TD has welcomed the news that Roscommon County Council has been granted approval to invite tenders for four water treatment schemes.
These include schemes in Arigna, Boyle/Ardcarne, Roscommon Central and South Roscommon areas.
“This announcement will address the on-going problem of poor quality of water in certain areas,” stated Denis Naughten.
“The communities in each of these areas had long waits for these projects to be given the initial go-ahead in November 2011 and then had to endure another almost 18 month wait before the Department of the Environment eventually signed off on that announcement this week, allowing the Council to seek tenders for the work on each scheme,” stated Denis Naughten.
“These projects are of vital importance to the economic development of the local area and I now hope that they will be completed as soon as possible,” concluded Denis Naughten.
