Essential works to the water network in East Blackrock
08 December 2023
Uisce Éireann, working in partnership with Louth County Council, is carrying out essential works on the water network in East Blackrock. The works will take place on Monday, 11 December from 10am until 4pm.
During these hours, customers in in East Blackrock, including Birches Lane, The Square, Rock Road, Marine Crescent, Marine Avenue, Marine View, Marine Court, Sea View, Village Green, Sandymount, Rockmount, Sandy Lane, Beech Park, The Ferns, Blackrock Road and surrounding areas may experience an interruption to their water supply during this time.
Following completion of the works, water supply may take 2-3 hours to return as water refills the network.
Speaking about the benefits, Padraig Hanly, Programme Manager with Uisce Éireann said: “This project will improve the capacity of the existing water main in the area, improving performance and reducing demands on the network. It will also support existing and future development within the community.”
Padraig added, “On behalf of Uisce Éireann, I’d like to thank the local community in advance for their patience and cooperation as traffic management will be necessary as the project progresses. However, based on previous experiences, we know that the short-term inconvenience will be overshadowed by the long-term benefits.”
The project will also support social and economic growth, including planned housing development, and will significantly improve the capacity and operational performance of the existing water network, benefitting homes and businesses.
