Kilkenny Regional Water Supply Scheme
This 1.5 million project will benefit 2,124 customers and is needed to expand the area served by the current Outrath network.
This project will provide a minimum of 24 hours storage for the area served from Outrath reservoir and improve the chlorine residuals in the townlands of Wallslough, Furzehouse and Kilferagh.
What are the benefits of this project?
Improve water quality of receiving watercourses
Provide additional storage in the event of an outage
Improve the chlorine residuals in the townlands of Wallsough, Furzehouse and Kilferagh
Increase water pressure
What is involved in this project?
- During periods of high demand on the scheme there is an insufficient supply and pressure to supply Outrath Reservoir. At present, there is only 7 hours of storage at Outrath.
- The pump station at Outrath is located at too high an elevation. This project will move the pumps to a more suitable location and provide additional storage in the event of an outage.
