During an interview with Myles Duggan on RTÉ Radio 1 on Monday 12th August, Minister McGinley said that the Dungloe Sewerage Scheme would be starting in weeks rather than months.
The action group says it will continue to monitor the progress of the work very closely to ensure that it commences within a few weeks, as promised.
The Dungloe Sewerage Action Group, set up recently following sewerage leaks in the town, now calls on the Council to put in place a desludging programme until such time as the new sewage plant is operational.
The group has calculated that the existing septic tanks should be desludged at least once a fortnight so as to guarantee that the people of Dungloe are never exposed again to the dangers that arose recently.
The group also reiterates their call on the Council to set up a consultation process with the people of Dungloe to outline the extent and timeframe of the proposed works.Tags:
