Plans to hook up three new housing developments
IT is estimated it will cost the Council €250,000 to connect three problematic estates in Bridgend to the main sewer network, a senior water and environment engineer has revealed.
Speaking at the bi-monthly meeting of the Inishowen Electoral Area in Carn on Tuesday, Engineer Pat Gillespie outlined how the Council propose to sort out the ongoing sewage problems in the Carrick Bridge, Stoney Bridge and Aileach Valley housing estates.
Mr. Gillespie described the work to be carried out in Carrick Bridge to be the most “straight forward” while in Stoney Bridge he suggested building a pumping station to connect toe the public sewer network. However he said that the problems at Aileach Valley were more complicated as it was on a low site and a substantial distance from the public sewer. He presented two options to the Council adding that “either way” they would need permission from the landowner to put the pipe under ground.
