Check below for all updates and developments.
Automatic Scour Valves – Completed
In 2018 we installed eight automatic scour valves in various locations throughout the scheme. These valves automatically flush out the lines during the night when the demand for water is low. This greatly improves water quality. It is our intention to install more of these automatic scours over the coming years.
Electrical Installations – Completed.
Earlier this year we acquired a site with an electricity installation in Sraheens, Balla near the Mass Centre. In late summer we installed and commissioned a new Booster Station which will ensure a regular supply of pressurised water to all the members in the area. Initially there were some concerns about the water pressure, but these have all been resolved.
Installation and movement of water pipes – Ongoing
We have been working in conjunction with engineers from the National Roads Office in Mayo County Council to plan and design the installation and movement of water pipes in the Sweetwell and Cloongallaun areas of the scheme, to facilitate the construction of the new bridge and the N26 road realignment. We are very grateful to our members in the area for their cooperation in assisting us with access to their land to carry out the works.
Installing safety rails on all our reservoirs – Ongoing
We are in the process of installing safety rails on all our reservoirs at the three sites in Bohola. This will be completed by the end of the year.
Replacement of existing water mains – Ongoing
Callow Water has been approved for funding of various Network Upgrades under the Rural Water Program 2019 – 2021 as announced recently by The Department of Housing, Planning, Community & Local Government. This will involve the replacement of existing water mains under a water conservation project. We hope to start these works in the summer of 2020 and have them completed by the end of 2021.
