Irish Water, working in partnership with Fingal County Council, is postponing infrastructural works at Deerhaven Park, Littlepace, Dublin 15 until next year in order to support businesses that have only recently re-opened.

Works that were scheduled to take place from 2:00pm on Tuesday 8 December to 2:00am on Wednesday 9 December and again from 2:00pm to 10:00pm on Thursday 10 December have been postponed and customers in Dunboyne, Loughsallagh, Clonee, Stirling Road, Damastown, Littlepace, Williamstown, Allendale, Ongar, Mount Symon, Portersgate, Hartstown and Lohunda will not be impacted by any disruption to their supply.

Irish Water continues to work at this time, with our Local Authority partners, contractors and others to safeguard the health and well-being of both staff and the public and to ensure the continuity of critical drinking water and wastewater services. Irish Water would like to remind people to follow the HSE COVID-19 advice and ensure frequent handwashing.

Previous Updates

These works are part of a national upgrade programme

Irish Water, working in partnership with Fingal County Council, is progressing with plans to carry out infrastructural works at Deerhaven Park, Littlepace, Dublin 15. When completed, these works will provide a safer and more secure water supply to homes and businesses in Dublin 15.

Timing

Works that were scheduled for Tuesday 8 December and Thursday 10 December between 8:00am and 8:00pm daily have now been rescheduled in order to minimise disruption to homes and businesses in the area.

Works will now take place from 2:00pm on Tuesday 8 December to 2:00am on Wednesday 9 December and again from 2:00pm to 10:00pm on Thursday 10 December.

Impact

While these works are ongoing customers in Dunboyne, Loughsallagh, Clonee, Stirling Road, Damastown, Littlepace, Williamstown, Allendale, Ongar, Mount Symon, Portersgate, Hartstown and Lohunda will experience a water outage.

National Upgrade Programme

These works are part of a national upgrade programme and will involve the construction of a Pressure Reducing Valve (PRV) Chamber and other essential works off the existing pipeline which runs through Deerhaven Park. These chambers will allow significant water conservation and savings to be made in the Dublin 15 area as well as improved water pressure for residents. Works will include the installation of key water infrastructure in the green area of Deerhaven. The park area will be fully reinstated following the works. All chambers will be made flush with the existing ground and no items will protrude over the ground.

Works are being carried out by Carty Contractors Limited on behalf of Irish Water and will last for approximately 8 weeks.
