Senator Michelle Mulherin

Senator Michelle Mulherin has challenged Irish Water to come clean on its plans for its Ballina Waste Water Treatment plant at Belleek amid concerns in the town that there are moves underway to develop the site as a sludge hub for Mayo.

Following a meeting between Irish Water and public representatives in Ballina on Monday, Senator Mulherin said there were still a lot of unanswered questions even though the company had stated that there were no plans for a sludge hub in Ballina.

She said this week: "Irish Water stated that the works they are proposing will entail an upgrade of the de-watering facilities which would also provide for a 20 per cent increase in capacity and that Ballina will not be a sludge hub. They intend to apply for planning permission in four months or so.
