Irish Water has announced that it is currently working on the detailed design and planning of the waste water infrastructure for the towns of Rathmullan, Milford and Ramelton in Co Donegal.
The tool says that the project will take about 3 to 4 years with works starting this year.
Irish water says the project will ensure adequate waste water treatment in Rathmullan, Milford and Ramelton.
At present, the towns of Rathmullan and Ramelton do not have water treatment while Milford has an inferior wastewater treatment with untreated or partially purified wastewater discharged into the environment in the three cities.
It is intended that the planning, design and construction of the wastewater treatment project will take about 3 to 4 years, starting between 2018 and 2021.
The tool says that third-party surveys and landowners involvement has begun and as soon as there is enough data and the optimal solution for the area has been confirmed, a public information event will be held.
It is expected that the planning application will be submitted to the local authority in 2019.
