A tractor and slurry tanker are being used to remove sewage from a new housing estate in south Dublin each week.

106 homes at the White Pines development in Rathfarnahm are not connected to the mains system.

An industrial scale tank is being used to store the wastewater before it's taken away for treatment.

The Herald reports the issue isn't due to be fixed until next year as the local area struggles with demand.
