Work has begun to upgrade the water treatment plant at Killeglan Springs, which when complete, will enable the lifting of the boil water notice in South Roscommon.

These works are part of a capital funding investment programme of €12 million to enable Roscommon County Council to proceed with the construction of five new water treatment plants and one pumping station on the South Roscommon Regional Water Supply Scheme (Killeglan Springs) along with Arigna and Boyle/Ardcarne.

The completion of this new treatment plant will see a lifting of the boil water notice in South Roscommon and the water will be UV tested in future to ensure this problem cannot reoccur again.  

Fine Gael Cllr Ollie Moore has welcomed the commencement this week of works on the upgrading of the new water treatment plant at Killeglan Springs.
He said the new treatment plant will also see an end to water discoloration which happens at certain times of the year when heavy rainfall occurs after a dry period and the water level in the springs is low.
