Deputy Denis Naughten has welcomed the publication of a report on the quality of drinking water supplies by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) which for the first time in a decade does not list any boil water notices in County Roscommon.
“This clean bill of health for public water supplies throughout County Roscommon is a very welcome development following significant investment in water supplies and treatment systems throughout the county over the last number of years,” said Denis Naughten.
“The saga of boil water notices in County Roscommon, which had been going on for years, has at long last been resolved and this EPA Report is the first since the 2007-08 report which does not mention County Roscommon in the list of boil water notices.
“This is an issue that I have been pursuing, particularly over the last six years, and I now hope that as a result of the investment we never have a repeat of the scale of boil water notices that we have experienced in County Roscommon.
“Due to the scale of the investment throughout County Roscommon we now have some of the most modern water treatment facilities in the country and we can now use this to attract new employment into our area,” concluded Denis Naughten.
