Fermanagh Area Plan 2007
Social Base: PU 4 Sewerage Schemes
|The Department will assess the need for new and extended sewage treatment works in the interests of public health and pollution control.|
New sewage treatment works have recently been constructed at Teemore and Arney/Skea. Phosphate reduction plants have been installed at Lisnaskea, Irvinestown, Brookeborough and Lisbellaw.
The Department also proposes the upgrading of the following sewage treatment works:
- Lisnaskea - New storm tanks
- Irvinestown - Works extension
- Brookeborough - Works extension
- Newtownbutler - Works extension
In addition a new works is proposed for Monea.
New and extended sewage treatment plants are necessary to treat effluent efficiently and to facilitate new development while phosphate removal plants are being introduced to improve the quality of treated effluent. These facilities will be constructed as and when resources permit. Further schemes may be assessed and brought forward during the Plan period. The Planning Service will expect high standards of siting, design and landscaping for all proposals.
