Essential works on Grand Parade Waste Water Pumping Station in Cork
Works to commence February 11
Irish Water, in partnership with Cork City Council, is replacing part of the infrastructure at the Grand Parade waste water pumping station adjacent to Nano Nagle Bridge. These essential works will commence on Monday February 11 and are expected to take up to three weeks.
“The pipework has reached its end of life and needs to be replaced. These works will ensure safe and efficient pumping of waste water at this location and help to protect the environment.” said Pat Britton, Irish Water’s Waste Water Lead for Cork.
External covers removal may cause odours
The external covers at the pump station will need to be removed to facilitate the works. This may result in localised odours being present around the pump station while the works are taking place during the day. “Disruption caused by this essential maintenance will be kept to a minimum” added Pat Britton.
“Irish Water regrets any inconvenience these necessary improvements may cause and would like to thank local residents and businesses for their cooperation in delivering these essential works which will ensure a more reliable sewer network.”
