Veolia will build three new wastewater treatment plants on the west coast of County Donegal in Killybegs, Bundoran and Glencolumbkille, and optimise the Convoy facility in the east of the County. With the improvement of pumping stations and sewage networks, the new facility will treat wastewater for a total of nearly 21,000 people. They are scheduled to begin operating in spring 2018.
 

John Abraham, Country Director, Veolia Ireland said, “Helping Ireland to manage its precious natural resources is our priority for 2016. Together we will work with Irish Water to help improve the wastewater treatment infrastructure. We will also increase their capacity to allow for economic growth in the country.”
