Irish Water and your Local Authority are working in partnership to streamline and improve the application process for connecting to the water and wastewater network.
Irish Water is responsible for water and wastewater connections to homes and businesses throughout the country. We are working in partnership with Local Authorities to make getting a water and/or wastewater connection easier.
Irish Water is streamlining how individuals and businesses connect to the water and wastewater network. This section provides you with all the information about connections including FAQs and a clear step-by-step guide to the entire process.
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's Connection Fee is now called a Works Fee while the Development Levy fee is now an Infrastructure Fee. Please contact your Local Authority for more information on service connection charges.
