Batterstown Water Mains Replacement

National Leakage Reduction Programme

Uisce Éireann, in partnership with Meath County Council is installing new water mains in Batterstown, Co. Meath to provide a more reliable water supply. 

The works involve the installation of 1.6km of new modern water mains. The programme to install the new water mains in Batterstown, Co. Meath will commence at the end of November 2022. 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 L22091.

The works may 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 GMC Utilities Ltd. and are expected to be completed at the end of February 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. For the safe delivery of works, a road closure will be in place along the L22091 with local traffic management in place along the R154 and L2209. Local and emergency traffic 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.

We understand that this type of work can be inconvenient and works crews will make every effort to minimise any disruption these necessary works cause.

More Information

Residents and businesses in the areas to benefit from the planned improvements have been notified directly.

Details of any supply interruptions associated to this project will be updated regularly on the Supply and Service Updates section of the Uisce Éireann website.
