Boil Water Notice lifted in Killeglan, Co. Roscommon
Added July 16, 2015
Glan Agua Ltd are pleased to announce that following extensive sampling and testing of the newly commissioned Water treatment plant in Killeglan (part of the South Roscommon RWSS), County Roscommon, the lifting of the Boil Water Notice from the water supply scheme. This treatment plant forms part of the Four Roscommon RWSS Design, Build and Operate (DBO) contract which was awarded to Glan Agua Ltd. The new treatment plant at Taghmaconnell near Ballinasloe was completed and commissioned in March 2015. The new treatment system includes a multi-barrier approach to the treatment of the raw water and includes source protection, coagulation, flocculation, dissolved air floatation clarification, filtration, and extensive disinfection systems. The plant includes state of the art monitoring and control systems and allows Glan Agua Ltd operations staff monitor performance of the plant on a 24 hour basis.
The plant was commissioned ahead of programme and has undergone significant testing and monitoring over the last number of weeks to demonstrate to the Environmental Protection Agency and the Health Service Executive that the plant was producing clean and wholesome safe water for the population of south Roscommon. Glan Agua Ltd continue to work with Irish Water and Roscommon County Council in developing water treatment systems for other treatment works in Co. Roscommon that comply with the most up to date regulations in order to remove further schemes from the EPA Remedial Action List.
We wish to thank the assistance of Roscommon County Council led by Kieran Madden and his team for the close working relationship throughout the successful delivery of the Contract, and also the Employers Representatives Jennings O’Donovan Ltd and J.B Barry & Partners Ltd who provided an excellent working relationship in the design and construction management. Our project team led by Andrew Young (Contract Manager) and John Fox (Operations Manager) were ably assisted by various delivery partners and sub-contractors who bought into the importance of the project delivery for Irish Water and worked very well in achieving the lifting of the boil water notice.”
