Arklow Wastewater Treatment Plant

Shay Murtagh is proud to have contributed to the development of the new, state-of-the-art wastewater treatment plant at the Old Wallboard Factory, North Quay, Ferrybank, Arklow. This project marks a significant step forward in environmental protection and wastewater management for the region.

Arklow has been highlighted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as an area of concern due to the discharge of untreated wastewater into the Avoca River. Such practices have long-term detrimental effects on local ecosystems and public health. Uisce Éireann, in partnership with Wicklow County Council, has committed to rectifying this issue by constructing a modern wastewater treatment facility capable of accommodating the needs of up to 36,000 PE (population equivalent).

Our collaboration with Ward and Burke, alongside Wicklow Co Co and Uisce Eireann, involved the manufacture, delivery, and installation of 2 no. Picket Fence Thickener tanks. These tanks are crucial components of the wastewater treatment process, designed to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the plant.

The Picket Fence Thickener tanks supplied by Shay Murtagh represent the latest in wastewater treatment technology. Their design and construction are tailored to meet the specific needs of the Arklow project, ensuring optimal performance and reliability.

This project underscores our commitment to supporting sustainable infrastructure developments. By providing essential components for the Arklow Wastewater Treatment Plant, we are helping to protect the Avoca River from pollution, thereby safeguarding the environment and enhancing the quality of life for the local community.

The Arklow Wastewater Treatment Plant project is a testament to the power of collaboration and innovation in addressing environmental challenges. Shay Murtagh is honoured to play a part in this vital initiative, contributing our expertise in architectural precast units to the betterment of Arklow and its surroundings.
