Cavanhill Water Treatment Plant Upgrade
Irish Water is investing over €10 million in the Dundalk Water Supply Scheme. This significant investment will upgrade the Cavanhill Water Treatment Plant (WTP) which supplies over 35,000 people in the Dundalk area.
Cavanhill is the primary drinking water production facility serving Dundalk. The supply is on the EPA’s Remedial Action List (RAL) for exceedances of Trihalomethanes (THMs) in the associated distribution networks. This project will provide a significant upgrade of treatment facilities at the Cavanhill WTP to address and remedy the deficiencies in the treatment plant.
