Arklow Water Supply Scheme - Lamberton Reservoir Refurbishment

Water Supply Project

Lamberton Reservoir serves the Arklow Water Supply Scheme in Co. Wicklow. The existing tower and small reservoir were constructed in the 1930s. A structural survey was carried out at the site and, based on the findings, it was necessary to reconstruct the small reservoir and rehabilitate the tower at Lamberton. The newer large reservoir at the site also underwent rehabilitation works as part of this €900,000 project.
