Speaking about the project, Matt Thompson, Irish Water said “We understand that this type of work can be inconvenient and will ensure our work crews make every effort to minimise any disruption these works may cause. We would like to thank the local community, businesses, homeowners and commuters for their patience and cooperation while we carry out important leak detection works that will help to safeguard the water supply for homes and businesses in the city.”

Irish Water would like to remind people to follow the HSE COVID-19 advice and ensure frequent handwashing.
Irish Water is working proactively with our delivery partners and as part of a multi-agency working group to ensure that our construction works are carried out in a controlled and safe manner, in keeping with Government and HSE guidelines to protect workers, their families and the broader community.
