What are the benefits of this project?

The upgrade works carried out as part of this project will:

  • Allow Irish Water to build a hydraulic model of the existing sewer network in Dundalk and Blackrock.
  • Determine the condition, capacity and performance level of the sewer network.
  • Allow Irish Water to prioritise sewers in need of upgrade on a national basis.
  • Part of a national programme of sewer surveys and models that are being undertaken across the country.

What is involved as part of this project?

As part of the project, we will:

  1. Undertake CCTV camera surveys and data collection of the sewer and manholes.
  2. Access to private property may be required to complete the surveys.
  3. Some minor road works and traffic management around manholes may be required for a limited time to facilitate the survey.
  4. Traffic will be managed in coordination with Louth County Council with limited or no traffic disruption expected as a result of these works.
