Uisce Éireann are publishing water supply and wastewater treatment registers to provide an indication of available capacity at our treatment plants.
Guide to Connect
We have compiled a Guide to Connect booklet to explain how developers can get their developments connected to the Uisce Éireann network.
There are three key processes which you will need to follow when getting a development connected to the Uisce Éireann network.
It is important to understand the water and wastewater infrastructure owned by Uisce Éireann and the water and wastewater infrastructure which will remain private in the future.
Strategic Housing Developments
The Planning and Development (Strategic Housing Development) Regulations 2017allows for certain types of planning applications to be made direct to An Bord Pleanála. These are referred to as Strategic Housing Development (SHD).
The Standard Details and Codes of Practice outline Uisce Éireann’s requirements and provide technical guidance for developers in the provision of water and/or wastewater infrastructure that is to be installed in developments and that will be connected to the water and/or wastewater networks.
This library of documents provides guidance for those involved in the construction of new developments which are connecting to the Uisce Éireann network.
