Irish Water, working in partnership with Meath Country Council, is delighted to announce the completion of major upgrades to the water network, in Stamullen, Co Meath. The delivery of this water project will ensure the future for new and existing residential and commercial development and will help to provide a more reliable water supply to the community.

Works involved the installation of approximately 1.2 kilometres of new modern mains from Cock Hill Road to Silverstream Close. The new main is feeding water into Stadalt pumping station, helping to relieve supply issues on the current network which were impacting homes and businesses.

Commenting on the project, Matt Thomson, Regional Lead with Irish Water said, “The delivery of these upgrade works will ensure a more secure water supply to homes and businesses in Stamullen. These works are part of a significant capital investment programme by Irish Water to safeguard the water supply in the area. The works will support existing and future residential and commercial development and will enhance overall performance of the network and help to protect supply. We would like to thank the local community for their patience and cooperation while we completed these necessary works.

Paul Kelly, Senior Executive Engineer, Water Services, Meath County Council said, “The collaboration between Meath County Council and Irish Water, on this project has ensured Stamullen is capable of meeting current and future demand. This project is one of several projects that Meath County Council in collaboration with Irish Water is undertaking across Meath that will improve the water supply across the county. These investment projects help unlock future opportunities for much needed growth and development in the area.
