Tekleen mechanical filter plant for Irish Water

Working with Veolia Water on behalf of Irish Water and Donegal County Council, Colloide were responsible for the supply of a tekleen mechanical filter plant. The €1 million upgrade of the Glenties Water Treatment Plant in Co. Donegal involved the addition of a third mechanical filter, which will bring many benefits to local residents and businesses in both the Glenties and Ardara areas.

 

The Glenties water supply is on the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Remedial Action List (RAL) for high levels of Trihalomethanes (THMs- conditionally carcinogenic compounds formed during chlorine disinfection in water treatment processes) and these works have been undertaken to reduce the risk posed by THMs for these customers.
