22 July 2010 No Comments by The Northern Standard

A €3.91 million funding allocation approved by the Minister for the Environment John Gormley this week was described at Monday night’s meeting of Monaghan Town Council as having the potential to considerably alleviate the serious flooding problems which intermittently strike the centre of the county capital.

The Minister announced on Friday last that he had given approval to Monaghan Co Council to invite tenders for work on the Monaghan Town Sewerage Scheme which would involve the construction of a wastewater pumping station, the provision of an odour control plant at the Old Cross Square pumping station site, the construction of replacement sewers and ancillary works.

“The work will alleviate the frequent incidences of flooding from the combined sewer at the junction of Dawson Street, Glen Road and the Market Road,” Minister Gormley stated.
