Letterkenny Water Treatment Plant
Added November 18, 2020
Glan Agua Ltd completed works on Letterkenny WTP back in July 2020 on behalf of Irish Water. The plant located at Goldrum in Termon has improved water quality for over 25,000 customers in the Letterkenny area.
Further the construction of the new WTP, Glan Agua Ltd and MEIC Ltd works involved the replacement of approximately 4.5 kilometres of water main from the water supply sources to the new water treatment plant. In addition, approximately one kilometre of trunk main and distribution main at Goldrum Water Treatment Plant was also constructed.
Finally, the works included the upgrade of pumping stations and intakes and the decommissioning of the existing Letterkenny Water Treatment Plant. The Letterkenny WTP works were done in conjunction with the construction of a new water treatment plant in Creeslough, Co Donegal, which was also completed last year.
The new treatment plant at Goldrum now ensures that there is a barrier in place for cryptosporidium and that the water being produced meets all parametric values as specified by European Drinking Water regulations. A big thank you to all of our partners in the construction of this project.
