Improvements are due to be made to the Tuam waste treatment services under the Sludge Management Plan, according to county councillor Seán Canney.
The Tuam-based Independent councillor said this week that he has been assured by the Director of Services with Galway County Council, Jim Cullen, that the Sludge Management Plan will provide for the upgrading of the Tuam waste treatment. He added that the improvements would also help to eliminate odours which have been noticeable at times.
Cllr Canney has welcomed the assurance that improvements would be carried out when the strategy is implemented. The next step in the process is for the county council to apply to the Department of Environment for approval for the strategy and to seek funding for the procurement process to begin.
