    The article you have linked to is about sewage and waste water. Why would that have any bearing on a property in ballymore eustace where its the treatment of ground water to create clean drinking water that takes place.

    We're considering a move to Ballymore Eustace but just noticed the house we viewed is located beside the water treatment plant.

    Does anyone know if the water treatment plant in Ballymore Eustace is very smelly/ dangerous to health to live beside? We've three young kids so don't want to endanger their lives as per https://www.researchgate.net/publication/303848224_Impact_on_the_Quality_of_Life_When_Living_Close_to_a_Municipal_Wastewater_Treatment_Plant

    So, if its waste water with foul sewer treatment it can cause odours, or noise if a generator is being used for pumping station. However, it depends on where the location is and if it's updated etc. If its surface water (no foul sewer) only it's fine. We recently pulled out of sale in Ardclough as the house was 50 meters from new waste water treatment plant that would have been 1000 PE capacity to treat foul sewers, waste water for the village. We have surveyor do small report & based on the type of plant, location and the existing network of pipes. There were historical issues with odours, it's certainly a chance you will take if its foul sewer waste plant. As the other poster commented if its surface water treatment its generally fine. If you are going ahead I'd recommend a survey of the plant.

    It doesn't need a survey to say its a clean water treatment plant - that is what it is and has been for many many years. (and recently upgraded)

    And you won't get a waste water plant anywhere near a clean water plant - except in Roscommon where pre-Irish Water the clever eejits in the council built a waste water and clean water plant next to each other and meant a boil notice for years until it was finally moved.

    This is why such a national body like Irish water was required as the depth of qualified people in councils was very poor
