Building on the Framework towards Uisce Éireann

The publication of the Framework for Future Delivery of Water Services by the Department of Housing, Local Government & Heritage (June 2022) set out the next steps in the transformation of the water sector in Ireland. In line with the Water Services Bill (Amendment) (No. 2) 2022, Irish Water will be known by its Irish name, Uisce Éireann, from January 2023 and will assume full responsibility for the delivery of all public water services In Ireland.

Uisce Éireann will build on the legacy of working and delivering for communities, bringing together the best of Local Authorities and Irish Water’s shared heritage and commitment to the water sector. As part of a national organisation, investing in and supporting its people, Uisce Éireann offers rewarding careers for staff with opportunities for progression.

By fully integrating all public water services, we intend to deliver on our ambition of enabling communities across Ireland to develop and thrive. We will ensure high quality drinking water, cleaner beaches and receiving waters, and we will support the building of new homes and industrial development right across the country.
