Ballycommon residents ‘tearing their hair out’ over sewerage system delay

The people of Ballycommon are “tearing their hair out” waiting for the village’s new sewerage scheme to be opened, according to Cllr Seamus Morris.

The people of Ballycommon are “tearing their hair out” waiting for the village’s new sewerage scheme to be opened, according to Cllr Seamus Morris.

He told Nenagh Municipa District Council that the residents, school, and businesses had all invested money in the scheme but they still have to pay someone to take away their sewerage.

He asked for a timeframe as to when the plant will open.

However, Jerry Robinson, water department, said that consultations were still ongoing between the various parties and if they were not successful the council may have to look at an alternative.

The plant could open immediately with minimum prep work.

Cllr Morris was supported by Cllr John Carroll, who described the plant as a state-of-the-art facility.
