Boost for Wexford as Uisce Éireann set to commence project to improve water supply

Information below is relevant until further updates are provided here or on our Supply and Service Updates section.

The project will increase the water supply capacity and support sustainable growth and development

Uisce Éireann will commence works on March 19 to install over 3.5km of watermains in Mayglass, South Wexford. The new water mains will alleviate current supply challenges in the area. The project will increase the water supply capacity, reduce the risk of interruption to water supply and support sustainable growth and development.

Programme Manager at Uisce Éireann, Lisa Cogan said: "We are delighted to be progressing this project for the people of Wexford and would like to thank the local community for their support and co-operation as we carry out this work. Once completed, the project will deliver a more resilient and reliable water supply and benefit the local community for decades to come."

To safely facilitate works, road closures will be in place from Mayglass Water Treatment Plant to Mulrankin. The first road closure will be in place from Tuesday 19 March at L3045-1/2/3 and L3046-4 at Tanner Hill, from its junction with the R739-4 at Walshestown to its junction with L-7094-3 at Cregg.

Alternative routes will be clearly signposted. Local and emergency access will be maintained.  To minimise disruption, the road closure will be carried out in rolling stages. We understand that this type of work can be inconvenient and works crews will make every effort to minimise any disruption these necessary works cause. Standard working hours will be in place from 7:30am to 6:00pm, Monday to Friday. 

These works are being delivered as part of Uisce Éireann's Growth and Development Programme. Coffey Construction Ltd. will carry out the works on behalf of Uisce Éireann, and they are expected to be completed in  Q4 of this year. 

Uisce Éireann is responsible for delivering public drinking water and wastewater services for the people of Ireland. We are committed to enabling communities to thrive by continuously upgrading and developing critical infrastructure to support sustainable growth and development, providing safe drinking water, and enhancing the environment.
