Taken last Friday night in Ballinrobe in Co Mayo of the water towers …………….. Men In Black Towers??????
“Water is the elixir of life, and Ireland is endowed with water in abundance. Yet, much of the water resources in Ireland are in the Midlands and West, but the concentration of population is in the East. This epitomises the water resources and balancing challenge in Ireland.
Mayo is fortunate to be so rich in water assets, with Lough Mask being the jewel and the venue for the World Fly Angling championships.”
Tobin Engineering Web Site:
“The challenge facing TOBIN as Consulting Engineers, entrusted by Mayo County Council with the task, was to deliver potable water to every household and business in Central, South and East Mayo. This involved extracting the water from Lough Mask, pumping it up to an elevation sufficient to deliver water by gravity to every corner of the region, treat it to meet exacting modern standards, and provide distributed local controls and storage to the main centres of population around the region. ”
