Irish Water progressing the Lower Liffey Valley Regional Sewerage Scheme
Irish Water is currently at the design stage to upgrade the wastewater network in the Lower Liffey Valley Region. This significant project will ensure that the wastewater network will have the capacity to provide for future population growth and economic development in this region.
The proposed project will include the construction of approximately 8km of twin 500mm rising mains from Leixlip Wastewater treatment plant to the 9C trunk sewer in Parslickstown Park. The planned investment also includes the construction of approximately 2km rising main and approximately 2.2km of m gravity sewer to Leixlip.
The Project Team have commenced the Detailed Design Stage of the project and have contacted identified landowners along the proposed route. The surveys carried out to date will be used to finalise the route of the proposed pipeline route. The information gathered as part of the site investigation and environmental surveys along the proposed pipeline route.
Irish Water will update the local community along the proposed route of the pipeline as the project progresses.
This project forms part of Irish Water’s investment plan where over €530 million will be invested in upgrading water services in 2016 to improve the country’s water and wastewater infrastructure.
