This €10.5 million project will involve the upgrade of the Ballyboden Water Treatment Plant.

The existing Ballyboden Water Treatment Plant is located within a 25 acre site situated on Stocking Lane, Rathfarnham, Dublin 16. Ballyboden Water Treatment Plant supplies treated water to customers in Dublin City, Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown and South Dublin County. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued a direction under the Drinking Water Regulations to cease the uncovered storage of treated drinking water at Ballyboden Water Treatment Plant. Open treated water storage can give rise to re-contamination of water following treatment, which presents risks to supply to customers in the Dublin Region.
