The EU has invested €35m, under the INTERREG VA Programme, to help impove water quality in Carlingford Lough and Lough Foyle through an enhanced wastewater treatment project known as SWELL (Shared Waters Enhancement & Loughs Legacy).
Led by Northern Ireland Water, in partnership with Irish Water; the Agri-Food Biosciences Institute (AFBI); Loughs Agency; and East Border Region, the project will see the construction of new wasterwater treatment works and upgrades to sewerage networks on both sides of the border.
Upon completion the project will have developed a unique environmental legacy model that will be used to make further improvements in water quality in these shared waters.
