Works commence on the Blanchardstown Regional Drainage Scheme to support development and safeguard the environment
The primary works will be contained within an area of Waterville Park to enable the construction of the underground storm water management facility and pumping station. Along Tolka Valley Park, 3km of new wastewater network will be constructed by tunnelling methods, to ensure that the impact on the park is kept to a minimum.
Irish Water will notify the local community and elected representatives in advance of any works and will provide further updates, along with contact details for the Project Team, throughout the project.
This project represents an Irish Water investment of almost €88 million in the Blanchardstown region.
Speaking about the project, John Joyce, Asset Delivery Regional Lead, Irish Water says: “This project is needed to provide Blanchardstown and surrounding areas with the infrastructure needed to support the building of houses, schools, attract new industry and allow companies to expand and grow.”
