1 Mins read

The Government of the United Kingdom is being taken before the European Court of Justice by the EU Commission over a breach of EU Sewage Treatment rules.

The commission has outlined 17 locations throughout the UK where Local Authorities are not complying with the regulations, this includes Ballycastle, County Antrim as well as Stranraer in Scotland and Gibraltar.

The regulations state that there must be secondary treatment of sewage. Ballycastle has no secondary treatment of sewage and Gibraltar has no treatment works at all.

An upgrade for the Ballycastle Sewage Works is planned for completion in 2017 to the cost of £10m.
