Works to safeguard the water supply to homes and businesses in Howth

06 September 2021

Irish Water, working in partnership with Fingal County Council, is commissioning the new water supply infrastructure in Howth to safeguard the drinking water supply for homes and businesses. The works are being delivered in accordance with current Government and HSE COVID-19 advice.

Six kilometres of watermain have been constructed including at three railway crossings. In addition a new pumping station and chlorination building has been constructed at Dungriffen Reservoir.  The final commissioning of the works in Howth are currently underway and are scheduled to continue until Friday 10 September. While works are underway, some customers in the Howth may experience some disruption to their water supply.

Irish Water and Fingal County Council regret any inconvenience caused and thank customers for their patience while we complete these essential works. Our work crews will make every effort to minimise the impact on customers.

William McKnight, Irish Water said, “Irish Water would like to thank the local community, businesses, homeowners and commuters for their patience and cooperation while we carry out these essential works to safeguard the water supply for the people of Howth. Irish Water understands this type of work can be inconvenient and we will ensure our work crews make every effort to minimise any disruption these essential works may cause."

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.
