Your Connection Guide

We take you through the connection application process for water and wastewater.


In line with the current Government, HSE and Public Health Ireland guidelines, we can receive and process enquiries, applications and payments in postal and electronic format currently. Unfortunately,  our on-site Inspection facility for housing developments and our ability to deliver connections are temporarily unavailable during this phase of the COVID-19 restrictions. In the event of an emergency situation requiring a connection like a HSE facility, please contact us directly and we will arrange to facilitate the request. We would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused as a result of this temporary suspension.
