Malik emerges as a prospect

first_img“He’s stepped his game up and emerged as a legitimate prospect,” Spartans coach Tom Hofman said. “He’s always had the ability and talent, but now the confidence has kicked in.” Never was that more apparent than this past weekend in the Southern Section Div. III-AA title game, when Malik scored 31 points in a 61-57 loss to Campbell Hall of North Hollywood, ranked No.2 in the state by Cal-Hi Sports and No.19 in the nation by USA Today. UC Davis and UC Irvine have scholarship offers on the table, but Malik doesn’t plan on making a decision soon. “I’m playing some of my best basketball right know,” Malik said. “This is it for me, the end of my high school career. I’m not worried about who’s watching me, my focus is with my team and leaving it all out on the floor at the end of every game.” La Canada High Something to prove: Campbell Hall is eager to re-establish itself as the premier program in the area. The Vikings (29-1) will have the opportunity to do so tonight against LACES of Los Angeles (13-22) in a first-round game of the Southern California Div. IV regional playoffs at Crespi High in Encino. “We’re focused. We’re ready,” Vikings senior Justin Holiday said. “We won’t be taking anything for granted anymore.” One step closer: Poly of Sun Valley benefited from its 12-day layoff between a nine-point loss to Westchester in the City Section semifinals and Tuesday’s 86-69 victory over Centennial of Corona in a first-round game of the Southern California Div. I regional playoffs. It will be interesting to see how the Parrots (24-5) bounce back tonight as they take on host Pasadena (31-2). “The victory was a combination of having fresh legs and being healthy for the first time in a while,” Poly coach Brad Katz said. “At this point, it doesn’t matter anymore. The rest of these games are huge.” sean.ceglinsky@dailynews.com (818) 713-3607 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Irish Water invest €500,000 in Rathmullan Water Treatment Plant

first_imgIrish Water has invested €500,000 in the Rathmullan Water Treatment Plant, which Irish Water say will ensure improved water quality and security of supply for customers served from this plant.As part of the project Irish Water constructed a multi-flow clarifier, a sludge storage facility as well as providing new chemical storage and associated site works.The works were completed over a 10-week period by Veolia and assisted by Donegal County Council on behalf of Irish Water. The Rathmullan supply is on the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Remedial Action List (RAL) for high levels of THMs and these works were undertaken to reduce the risk posed by THMs for these customers.The current water treatment plant in Rathmullan is supplying 50 per cent of the customers in Rathmullan and the other 50 per cent are supplied via an adjacent supply at Milford water treatment plant. The proposed solution was to provide a package treatment plant at the Rathmullan supply to alleviate the reliance on the Milford supply.Irish Water’s Capital Programme, Lead Martin Temple, said: “These important works for the Rathmullan Water Treatment Plant have just been completed and consumers in the area are now being supplied with an improved water quality where the risk from THMs has been reduced.”Irish Water has put in place the first national THM plan and a prioritised programme of investment to address all inadequacies in drinking water parameters including THMs. By 2021 we plan to reduce the number of schemes on the RAL to zero with an investment of €327 million in upgrading water supplies at risk from THMs. THMs, or trihalomethanes are chemicals formed by the reaction of naturally occurring dissolved organic material with chlorine which is used for disinfection in order to protect against pathogenic bacteria.This project forms part of Irish Water’s investment plan where works have been prioritised to address the most “critical issues”. Delivery of Irish Water’s business plan will involve a €5.5bn investment in capital spending on drinking water and wastewater quality and capacity and new infrastructure up to 2021.Irish Water invest €500,000 in Rathmullan Water Treatment Plant was last modified: November 15th, 2017 by Elaine McCalligShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Irish Waterrathmullan waste treatment plantlast_img read more
