Uisce Éireann, in partnership with South Dublin County Council, is pleased to announce that the construction of essential wastewater infrastructure in Clonburris is progressing well. This project is part of Uisce Éireann's commitment to meeting current and future demands while supporting social and economic development in the area. The project represents a significant investment in improving the wastewater infrastructure in Dublin.

The project, which commenced on site in January 2023, is progressing well with the majority of the wastewater pipeline already installed, and construction works on the new pump station progressing to schedule.

When completed, the new pump station and associated wastewater pipeline will support future growth and protect the environment, as well as facilitating development in the Clonburris Strategic Development Zone.”
