Client: Kerry County Council

Cost: €1 million (Contract No. 1)

Completion date: 2008 (Contract No. 1), 2009 (Contract No. 2)

Description: The town of Milltown, situated in County Kerry, has been identified as a prime growth dormitory town serving the main towns of Killarney, Tralee and Killorglin. The existing sewerage network and treatment plant is inadequate to meet the current and future demands.
The Preliminary Report proposed that the project be carried out in two phases, with Phase 1 incorporating the upgrade of networks in the core area of Milltown, and provision of a treatment plant. In recognition of this, Malachy Walsh and Partners prepared Contract Documents for the Milltown Sewerage Scheme Phase 1, which put forward proposals for upgrading and extending the existing foul sewer network, and providing a modern wastewater treatment plant.

The current project, known as ‘Milltown Sewerage Scheme Phase 1’, will encompass Phase 1 of the overall improvements proposed for the wastewater infrastructure in Milltown.

Milltown Sewerage Scheme Phase 1 involves two separate contracts:
Contract No. 1: Wastewater Treatment Plant (DBO)
Contract No. 2: Wastewater Collection System

Contract No. 2 includes the laying of approximately 5.3km of new foul sewers throughout the town and the construction of a new outfall discharging to the River Maine.
The construction of a new wastewater treatment plant will be carried out under a Design/Build/Operate (DBO) contract, Contract No. 1. The Wastewater Treatment Plant will be located, on a green field site, to the north of Milltown. It is proposed to ultimately provide a wastewater treatment plant to cater for a capacity of 6,800 p.e. at the site. The Plant is to be constructed, in phases, with Phase 1 catering for up to 3,500 p.e, with a second phase extending the Plant to 6,800 p.e.
