Terryland project supports vision for Galway City
21 June 2023
As you pass over the Quincentennial Bridge and glance towards the river you will see first-hand the ongoing works to ensure Galway City has a reliable water supply for years to come.
Uisce Éireann, in partnership with Galway City Council, are relocating raw water intake facilities on the River Corrib which will guarantee homes and businesses in the City of the Tribes have sufficient water to cater for their needs.
Works, which began last year, are progressing well with Uisce Éireann’s John McElwaine expecting a completion date of early next year.
‘’The construction of the intake and transfer water main will ensure that when water levels run low in the River Corrib, that drinking water production at the Terryland Water Treatment Plant for Galway City and environs will be able to continue as normal and consumers will not have their supply interrupted."
“This project augments existing infrastructure which will safeguard the supply and quality of water to the city for years to come,” added the Programme Manager.
Coffey Construction Limited is delivering the works on behalf of Uisce Éireann.
