In Infrastructure, Mid-Roscommon by Denis Naughten

Local TD, Denis Naughten has welcomed the planned investment by Roscommon County Council to upgrade the Four Roads/Mount Talbot Water Supply Scheme, to address ongoing problems with contamination.

Commenting on the plans, Cllr. Dominic Connolly said “In the coming days, Roscommon County Council will sign a contract to improve the water supply from the Cloonlaughnan Spring, by installing ultraviolet and filtration treatment, to address a number of contamination risks.

Also welcoming the announcement Cllr. Laurence Fallon, “the investment will include the installation of a filter to prevent contamination from Cryptosporidium, which caused the issuing of the recent boil water notice”.

The areas covered by this scheme include – Mount Talbot, Athleague, Four Roads, Torpan, Curraghboy, Liswilliam, Carrowkeeney, Ardmullan, Lispheilim, Castlecoote and Fuerty as well as a number group water schemes.

“It will take up to 4 months for the works to be completed, but this should protect against the risk of future boil water notices on the scheme” concluded Denis Naughten.
