Environmental Infrastructure Award 2013

The Mullingar Sewerage Improvement Scheme has been announced as the winner of the Environmental Infrastructure Award at the fourth annual Engineers Ireland Excellence Awards. Westmeath County Council in collaboration with Veolia Water Ltd, BAM Civil Ltd, Pierse Contracting Ltd, J.B. Barry and Partners Limited and Byrne Looby Partners, was praised for its work on upgrading the wastewater scheme.

As a result of the project, previous pollution from contaminated storm-water overflows has been removed, which has led to a significant improvement in the water quality of the River Brosna and Lough Ennell. The project will continue to have a positive impact on the ecology of the lake and will benefit all users of this important natural amenity area.

Commenting on the awards, Engineers Ireland Director General and Chartered Engineer, John Power, said,

The Environmental Infrastructure Award was a very competitive category this year and I would like to congratulate J.B. Barry and Partners Limited and all those who worked on the Mullingar Sewerage Improvement Scheme for their contribution to the project.

These awards recognise and celebrate the best of engineering in Ireland and this project is a prime example of the valuable contribution engineering makes to Irish society and the ingenuity and talent in the engineering industry in Ireland.
