New water mains in Knocknabohilly Kinsale improves water quality and supply
Works to install a new water main supplying St. Multose School and St. Multose Community Hall in Knocknabohilly Kinsale which commenced in August are now complete.
Installation of 400 water mains providing a more secure supply for Kinsale
Irish Water, in partnership with Cork County Council, has installed 400 metres of water mains to provide a more secure, reliable water supply in the community of Kinsale. This work was carried out as part of Irish Water’s Leakage Reduction Programme, which will see €500m invested nationally over the next four years to tackle problematic pipes and leakage in Ireland’s ageing water network.
Installing this new water main ensures a safe supply of water to St. Multose School and the local community centre, reducing the risk of contamination and providing a safer overall drinking water supply.
“The installation of this water main is essential in providing a safe, secure and reliable water supply for this area of Kinsale now and into the future” said Steven Blennerhassett, Leakage Reduction Programme Regional Lead.
“We would like to thank the community for their support during the works which has enabled the lifting of the boil water notice.”
