Baile na nGall Sewer Network Upgrade

Wastewater Project

Uisce Éireann has appointed a contractor to upgrade the wastewater network and stormwater treatment system in Baile na nGall, Co. Waterford.

Uisce Éireann, working in partnership with Waterford City & County Council, is progressing plans to upgrade the sewer network in Baile Na nGall, in the Gaeltacht na nDéise, Co. Waterford. David Walsh Civil Engineering Ltd. has been appointed to deliver these works on behalf of Uisce Éireann.

The current sewer infrastructure in the village is inadequate and upgrades are required to ensure wastewater discharges meet environmental compliance regulations. Once completed, this €8 million project will improve water quality in Dungarvan Bay Special Area of Conservation (SAC) and benefit homes and businesses in Baile na nGall and the surrounding area.


What is involved as part of this project?

As part of the project, Uisce Éireann will:

  • Upgrade of existing pumping station in An Mota;
  • Construction of 2 new pumping stations;
  • Upgrade approximately 3km of sewer pipelines;
  • Provide additional storm water storage.

What are the benefits of this project?

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

  • Improve the performance level of the sewer network.
  • Significantly reduce overflows into Dungarvan Bay.
  • Improve water quality in the Dungarvan Bay Special Area of Conservation (SAC).
  • Ensure environmental compliance with national and EU wastewater regulations.
  • Benefit the local community within the designated shellfish waters for oyster production.

What are the next steps?

A contractor has now been appointed to deliver these works. Construction is expected to commence in Summer 2024 with completion due at the end of 2025.

Further information

Traffic management will be required throughout construction in order to deliver these essential wastewater upgrades for the community in Baile na nGall. Work areas will be limited to short sections to minimise impacts locally. A Stop and Go one-lane system will be in place for pipelaying works along public roads and intermittent road closures may be required to deliver the works safely and efficiently in certain areas. Diversions, if required, will be communicated locally, however, local and emergency access will always be maintained. 

We will endeavour to engage directly with impacted stakeholders as the project progresses. For further information about the works, please visit our Dedicated Project webpage.
