Kilbehenny re-ignite efforts for Vllage Sewage Treatment

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kilbehenny are getting as many politicians behind them as they can in an effort to sort out a sewage treatment system for the village.  

 

Moss Fitzgerald, one of those involved explained how a

Village Plan and Design Statement was drawn up for the village in 2008, including details for the refurbishment of the

School, Church, GAA clubhouse, New Community Centre

and a Sewage Treatment System.   

 

Since then all projects have been completed, bar one:

The Sewage Treatment System.

 

Sadly over the last few years, Kilbehenny has been hit with the closure of our shop, Post Office and a pub because of a decline in our population in the area.  

 

We can’t build houses in Kilbehenny without a proper sewage system, so we are pulling out all the stops that this will be done.   

 

There’s a big problem with some of the houses as they all have septic tanks and the majority of them are flowing directly into the river.   

 

Land is available for a new treatment system to accommodate the village.

 

Let’s hope that the powers that be will take action to address this on-going problem.
