Lower Harbour Sewerage Scheme public consultation in Monkstown school
Irish Water held a public consultation in respect of the Lower Harbour Sewerage Scheme in Monkstown school tonight, 16th June.
Representatives from Irish Water and Bord Gais were present to liaise with local residents and interested people who had come along to view the proposed plans.
For this side of Cork Harbour, it is proposed that 3 pumping stations at Carrigaline will pump wastewater to a new treatment plant at Shanbally. A further 2 pumping stations (1 at Ringaskiddy and 1 at Shanbally) will pump wastewater from east of the treatment works. Another pumping station at Coolmore Cross will deliver wastewater from houses in that area to Shanbally. Wastewater from Passage West and Glenbrook will be pumped to Monkstown by 2 pumping stations in Passage West and 1 new pumping station in Glenbrook. Wastewater from Cobh will be pumped across Cork Harbour to Monkstown. A new pumping station in Monkstown will deliver Passage West, Glenbrook, Monkstown and Cobh wastewater to the new treatment plant at Shanbally.
This evening's consultation proposes that the pumping stations in Passage West will be outside the Soccer Club and at the sea side of the wall adjacent to the children's playground in Fr O'Flynn Park. The pumping station in Glenbrook will be a stand-alone entity along the footpath close to the bus stop opposite Neptune Lodge. The pumping station in Monkstown is currently proposed for location in the Sandquay. The significant overground structure associated with the pumping station at the Sandquay generated much public comment at the information evening.
