A few choice quotes from RTE article regarding new sewage plant at Clonshaugh…
Not feeling confident that optimal dispersal just means an even amount of brown water in a wide area for all.

---Article Extract---
"The permission also allows for a 12km outfall pipeline to bring the treated wastewater from there to Baldoyle and out to sea for discharge around 1km north east of Ireland's Eye.
Irish Water said at an oral hearing that sea conditions there will allow for "optimal dispersal" of the effluent which will have been treated with ultraviolet disinfectant.

There would also be "slight or short and very localised negative impacts" on marine mammals and birds during construction.
Local residents, farmers, water sport clubs and environmentalists had opposed the plan fearing the effect on the local land and the sea.
