Leakage Reduction


Improved supply of water to Kilkenny city centre

  • The new water mains to be installed as part of this project will be larger diameter than the old mains and are designed to allow increased water supply to the city centre area. These works to improve availability of water supply to the city centre area are a continuation of the works already completed in Patrick Street in 2018

A reliable water supply

  • Replacing the ageing water mains and service connections will reduce the instances of bursts and water outages and will ensure a reliable supply of water to customers in the area

Improved Water Quality

  • Removing existing old cast iron and lead from the water network and replacing them with new plastic pipes will reduce the risk of contamination

Improved Operation and Maintenance

  • These works will deliver cost savings by providing improved water network operation that will require less maintenance in the future
