New sewage scheme planned for Waterville.

Residents in Waterville hope to have a new sewage scheme in place in the village in 18 months. Site investigations for the 10 million euro project have begun. The village has experienced a building boom in recent years with a huge growth in holiday home developments. The new sewage scheme will cater for a population of around 3,000 over five times the numbers of permanent residents. According to the Council Fisheries and Tourism representatives have been fully consulted on the scheme. The contract for site investigation has been awarded to Geotech from Castlemartyr in Cork.
