Construction of new state-of-the-art wastewater pumping station to commence in Midleton

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

This is being delivered as part of our Growth and Development Programme.

This phase of the Midleton LIHAF project involves the construction of a new wastewater pumping station in lands adjacent to Mill Road in Midleton, and approximately 1km of rising main to connect to the Water Rock wastewater pumping station, which involves crossing the Owenacurra River.

Works completed on the Midleton LIHAF project to date include the construction of 6km of wastewater pipeline from Knockgriffin to Carrigtwohill, and new gravity sewer pipeline from the Nordic Enterprise Park to the Northern Relief Road roundabout.

A new wastewater pumping station at Water Rock has also been constructed and is currently being commissioned. When the Midleton LIHAF project is complete, this pumping station will carry wastewater flows from the planned pumping station in Midleton North to the Carrigtwohill Wastewater Treatment Plant.

Geda Construction Ltd. has been appointed to deliver construction works on behalf of Uisce Éireann. Site clearance works have been completed, with main construction works anticipated to commence in later this month. Works to install the new rising main will require traffic management along Mill Road and the Northern Relief Road, which will be agreed in consultation with Cork County Council. The project is expected to be completed in 2025.

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.
