Critical upgrades to the wastewater network progressing in Blackrock, Co. Louth

Uisce Éireann is working in partnership with Louth County Council to deliver critical upgrades to the wastewater infrastructure in Cocklehill, Blackrock. The delivery of this important wastewater project will support future economic and social development and will improve the capacity of the network for residents and businesses in the area.

The works, which will commence in March, involve the upgrade of Cocklehill Wastewater pump station which in turn will improve capacity of the existing wastewater network in the area.

Commenting on the project, Padraig Hanly, Regional Delivery Lead at Uisce Éireann said, "Working with our colleagues in Louth County Council, we are delighted that these essential works are underway. This upgrade is essential to help support business and social development in the community. These works will improve the overall performance of the wastewater network enabling the delivery of a reliable, sustainable, and high-quality wastewater service."

Acknowledging the support of the local community, Padraig added, "We understand that the works may cause minor disruption to local residents and our crews will continue to make every effort to minimise disruption and complete the project as quickly as possible. We thank the people of Blackrock for their patience as these works progress and know that the long-term benefits will far outweigh the short-term inconvenience."

These works are being delivered as part of Uisce Éireann's Growth and Development Programme and are due to be completed in 2023. This project is being delivered by GMC Utilities Group Ltd on behalf of Uisce Éireann.

Emergency traffic and access for residents will be maintained at all times.
