Get Connected to the Network
Irish Water and your Local authority are working in partnership to streamline and improve the enquiry\application process for connecting to the water and wastewater networks.
A guide to your connection
Follow our step-by-step guide to steer you through your water and/or wastewater connection process. The process takes place in two phases: the pre-connection enquiry phase and the connection application phase.
Start the connection process
In this section you can select the water services connection type you require. Depending on what stage of the planning process you are at, you will need to fill out a Pre-connection Enquiry form and/or a Connection Application form.
We offer a range of resources and support material for developers, offering a helping hand through the entire process, including design vetting and construction phases.
Irish Water's current charges for water and wastewater service connections were previously included by Local Authorities in their levies/fees structures up until 31 December 2013. The previous Local Authority Connection Fee is now called a Works Fee while the Development Levy fee is now an Infrastructure Fee. The CRU has published a final decision on a new set of standardised connection charges. These will go live on 1 April, 2019.
