Programmes & Sponsorship
Irish Water is proud to invest in our communities across the country through various partnerships with some of Ireland's leading environmental programmes.
We are delighted to continue our sponsorship of An Taisce's Green-Schools water theme for the sixth year running. The water theme encourages primary and secondary school children to develop their awareness around water conservation and how to effectively manage this important resource in our schools and homes.
Think Before You Flush
Irish Water is proud to fund and support the Think Before You Flush campaign, run by Clean Coasts. This programme aims to tackle the serious problem of sewage related litter on Ireland’s beaches and encourages responsible bathroom behaviour to protect the marine environment from pollution.
Think Before You Pour
The Think Before You Pour campaign is operated by An Taisce’s Clean Coasts programme in partnership with Irish Water. When fats, oils and grease (FOG) are hot and in liquid form, they pour easily down the kitchen sink. However, when they cool they form solid masses which can cause serious pipe blockages and sewer flooding, resulting in property damage and harm to the environment.
Why Value Water
Water is one of our most valuable resources. It has shaped our landscape, dictated the location of our cities, protected our health and fuelled our economic development in Ireland. For a long time, Ireland’s water network has served us reasonably well, but it now faces serious challenges.
