Aghamilla, Clonakilty Water Mains Replacement

Uisce Éireann, in partnership with Cork County Council, is replacing ageing, problematic water mains prone to bursts in Aghamilla, Clonakilty, Co. Cork to provide a more secure and reliable water supply and reduce high levels of leakage.

The works involve the replacement of approximately 4132m of aged problematic water mains with new modern pipes. The programme to replace the water mains in Aghamilla, Clonakilty, Co. Cork will commence in early June 2023. These works are being carried out as part of Uisce Éireann's National Leakage Reduction Programme.

The section of works will take place along the R599 and L4001 Bealad, Aghamilla, Clonakilty, Co.Cork.

The works will also involve laying new water service connections from the public water main in the road to customers' property boundaries and connecting it to the customers' water supply. Where the existing service connections on the public side are lead these will be replaced as part of this improvement work.

The works will be carried out on behalf of Uisce Éireann by Ward and Burke Construction Ltd and are expected to be completed by end of October 2023.

What are the benefits of the works?

The benefits of the leakage reduction works include:

  • A Reliable Water Supply - Replacement of water mains and service connections will reduce the instances of bursts and water outages and will ensure a reliable supply of water to customers and local businesses in the area.
  • Reduced Leaks - Replacement of water mains and service connections will eliminate existing leaks and reduce the amount of clean drinking water lost into the ground.
  • Improved Operation and Maintenance - These works will deliver cost savings by providing improved water network operation that will require less maintenance in the future.

Will customers be affected by the works?

Areas of work will be limited to short sections to minimise impact on customers. Traffic management in the form of traffic lights and a road closure will be in place along the R599 and L4001 Bealad, Aghamilla, Clonakilty for the duration of the project to deliver the works safely and efficiently. A road closure is required from 19th June until 28th July 2023. Traffic will follow a sign posted diversion. Local and emergency access will always be maintained.

The works may involve some short-term water interruptions and the project team will ensure that customers are given a minimum of 48 hours' notice prior to any planned water interruptions.
