30 May 2023

Uisce Éireann is committed to playing its part in the national drive to provide homes to people who need them by developing and prioritising the delivery of key water and wastewater infrastructure.

Working in partnership with Meath County Council, Uisce Éireann is progressing the delivery of key wastewater infrastructure which will facilitate the development of essential housing in the Navan area.

The Farganstown Local Infrastructure Housing Activation Fund (LIHAF) Wastewater Project, which is currently in design stage, represents a €20 million investment by Uisce Éireann and involves the installation of approximately 2km of new wastewater pipeline and the construction of a new pumping station.  

When completed the project will provide for future population growth and economic development, facilitating the delivery of new housing developments in the Farganstown area.

Commenting on the project Lisa Cogan, Programme Manager with Uisce Éireann, said “We are looking forward to delivering this significant project on behalf of the local community in Navan. Improving the required wastewater infrastructure will enable communities in Navan to continue to thrive both socially and economically in the years to come.”

Uisce Éireann continues to liaise with local landowners and is in the process of securing the necessary lands and wayleaves required for this project. Confirmation of the Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) has been published.

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.
