Next Steps

  • Site Investigation is scheduled to commence from Tuesday 9 June, 2020.
  • The proposed works will require planning permission and Irish Water is currently preparing the application and progressing through the detailed design phase. However, before we can apply for this permission we will need to acquire the necessary land and wayleaves for the pipes and pumping stations. It may be necessary to carry out a Compulsory Purchase Order if these cannot be acquired by agreement, and this process is expected to be completed in 2021.
  • The building, repair and upgrading of Irish Water’s water treatment plants, wastewater treatment plants, water and sewer network will require a multi-billion euro investment programme over many years.  Irish Water is committed to improving wastewater treatment and capacity across the country.
