Delivery of first class water services for Donegal customers
Upgrading the fleet of water services vans operating in County Donegal
Irish Water is upgrading the fleet of water services vans operating in County Donegal as part of its ongoing strategy to improve the service delivered to customers. This included the delivery of six new work vehicles to Donegal County Council last week. In total 56 new vehicles will be delivered to Donegal
in a phased basis over the coming three months. The provision of these new vehicles will help ensure water services staff continue to deliver an efficient and reliable service to our customers.
Operated by Donegal County Council on behalf of Irish Water
The new vehicles will be operated by Donegal County Council on behalf of Irish Water, and will be used for the maintenance and upkeep of the water networks across the county, in routine, reactive and emergency situations.
Kevin Love, Irish Water’s Asset Operations Lead for Co Donegal, commented “We are delighted to be in a position to hand over these new vehicles to Donegal County Council. This investment in modern, efficient vehicles will enable personnel to carry out their work in a safe and efficient manner, ultimately
improving the service we offer to our customers. This investment is in line with Irish Water’s commitment to developing a systematic approach to the operation and maintenance of the water and wastewater networks in order to continue to deliver a quality service to all our customers.”
Providing top class delivery of water services to the people of Donegal
Paul Lyons, Senior Executive Engineer with Donegal County Council, added “We are very pleased to
take delivery of these new service vehicles. Having efficient, modern vehicles will ensure that our staff can continue to provide top class delivery of water services to the people of Donegal.”
In partnership with local authorities, we are investing in upgrading our fleet nationally. This is essential in order to deliver on our commitment to deliver quality, fit-for-purpose water and wastewater services for all our customers.
