Part of national Leakage Reduction Programme
These works are being carried out as part of our national Leakage Reduction Programme which will, over the next 4 years, see €500 million invested to reduce the level of leakage across the country by fixing and replacing ageing water mains. This will ensure a safe, reliable water supply which is vital for our health, our environment and our growing population and economy. We are tackling the size and scale of the issue of aging infrastructure in many ways around the country and the Leakage Reduction Programme aims to give a more secure and reliable supply once the improvement works are carried out.
