Nenagh area councillors have been urged by the executive to bring a motion to the council urging that the sewers in St Joseph’s Park be maintained.

Nenagh area councillors have been urged by the executive to bring a motion to the council urging that the sewers in St Joseph’s Park be maintained.

Cllr Seamus Morris pointed out that the sewers in the estate block occasionally and wondered if the council would continue to unblock them.

Director of services Matt Shortt said that the sewer was not part of the public network as it was a combined sewer.

He suggested the councillors bring a motion pointing out to Irish Water that the council had historically maintained the estate’s sewerage system.

“If Irish Water agree, they pay us, if they don’t we pay it,” he said.
