Not a subject on which many of us dwell, but does anybody know if there are plans to roll out sewage treatment plants to all of the places the currently dispose directly into the sea?
Both Clonakilty and Courtmacsherry have seen massive seaweed blooms this year due to the huge amount of fresh (human) fertilizer in the sea. Courtmacsherry beach is now dinuded of visitors as it plain and simply stinks in the wrong conditions.
I am surprised that after the whole Galway Water debacle, we have not heard anything further on water and waste treatments.
Unfortunately, the planners never made it a prerequiste of the developers of all the new coastal housing to put in an adequate infrastructure to cope with all the new housing and it will now be impossible to retrospectively enforce any requirements for such on them.
I know this thread crosses the green-issues / infrastructure boundary, but think that water and waste are as important as roads, rails and electricity as infrastructure projects.

In many ways the problem in Galway is there is way too much one off housing in the Lough Corrib catchment area.
