What is involved?

  1. Wastewater from the house or business flows into the unit shown below.
  2. When the amount of wastewater reaches a certain level, a switch activates a grinder in the pump that softens the wastewater.
  3. The wastewater is then pumped through a small pipe away to the new pipe network.
  4. The wastewater will flow along this pipe network for treatment in the upgraded Údaras Wastewater Treatment Plant. 

Next Steps

  • Irish Water is currently constructing the pressure sewer network associated with the Demonstration Project
  • Following completion of these works, installation of the pods and associated works will take place at individual properties
