Athsholáthar an phríomhlíonra uisce ar an mBun Beag agus ag Coshclady / Bunbeg Pier and Coshclady Water Mains Replacement

An Clár Laghdaithe Sceite / National Leakage Reduction Programme

Tá Uisce Éireann, i gcomhpháirtíocht le Comhairle Contae Dhún na nGall, ag athsholáthar an phríomhlíonra uisce atá ag dul in aois ar an mBun Beag agus ag Coshclady, An Bun Beag, Co. Dhún na nGall chun soláthar uisce níos iontaofa a sholáthar agus chun ardleibhéil sceite a laghdú.

Irish Water, in partnership with Donegal County Council, is replacing ageing, problematic water mains at Bunbeg Pier and Coshclady, Bunbeg, Co. Donegal to provide a more reliable water supply and reduce high levels of leakage.

Sonraí faoin tionscadal

Áirítear leis na hoibreacha athsholáthar a dhéanamh ar os cionn 764 méadar de sheanphríomhphíobáin uisce lena mbaineann fadhbanna agus píobáin nua chomhaimseartha a chur ina n-áit. Cuirfear tús leis an gclár chun na príomhphíobáin uisce ag Cé an Bhuna Bhig agus ag Coshclady, An Bun Beag, Co. Dhún na nGall a athsholáthar go déanach i mí an Mhárta 2022. Tá na hoibreacha sin á gcur chun feidhme mar chuid de Chlár Laghdaithe Sceite Náisiúnta Uisce Éireann.

Tarlóidh an chuid seo de na hoibreacha ar an R258 Bóthar an Chuain agus ag Coshclady ar an mBun Beag, Co. Dhún na nGall.

Áireofar leis na hoibreacha freisin naisc seirbhíse uisce nua a leagan síos ón bpríomhlíonra poiblí sa bhóthar chuig teorainneacha réadmhaoin na gcustaiméirí agus é a nascadh le soláthar uisce na gcustaiméirí. Nuair a bhíonn na naisc seirbhíse reatha ar thaobh an phobail déanta de luaidhe, athsholáthrófar iad sin mar chuid den obair feabhsúcháin sin. Is é Farrans Construction Ltd a dhéanfaidh na hoibreacha thar ceann Uisce Éireann agus táthar ag súil go gcuirfear i gcrích iad faoi mhí an Mheithimh 2022.

Details of the project

The works involve the replacement of over 764 metres of aged problematic water mains with new modern pipes. The programme to replace the water mains at Bunbeg Pier and Coshclady, Bunbeg, Co. Donegal will commence in late March 2022. These works are being carried out as part of Irish Water’s National Leakage Reduction Programme.

The section of works will take place along the R258 Harbour Road and at Coshclady in Bunbeg, Co. Donegal.

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 Irish Water by Farrans Construction and are expected to be completed by June 2022.

Cad iad tairbhí na n-oibreacha?

Áirítear na nithe a leanas le tairbhí na n-oibreacha laghdaithe sceite:

  • Soláthar Uisce Iontaofa –Trí athsholáthar an phríomhlíonra uisce agus na naisc seirbhíse laghdófar na teagmhais de phíopaí pléasctha agus de bhristeacha sa soláthar uisce agus cinnteofar soláthar níos iontaofa uisce do chustaiméirí agus do ghnólachtaí áitiúla sa cheantar.
  • Ligin Laghdaithe – Trí athsholáthar an phríomhlíonra uisce agus na naisc seirbhíse cuirfear deireadh leis na ligin atá ann agus laghdófar méid an uisce óil a chailltear sa talamh.
  • Oibriú Feabhsaithe agus Cothabháil Fheabhsaithe – Soláthrófar coigilteas costais leis na hoibreacha sin trí oibriú feabhsaithe an líonra uisce óna dteastóidh cothabháil níos lú sa todhchaí.

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.

An rachaidh na hoibreacha i bhfeidhm ar chustaiméirí?

Ionas go ndéanfar na hoibreacha a sholáthar go sábháilte, déanfar limistéir na hoibre a theorannú do chodanna gairide d’fhonn an iarmhairt ar chustaiméirí a íoslaghdú. D’fhéadfadh bainistiú tráchta a bheith i bhfeidhm le linn na tréimhse seo, le soilse tráchta sealadacha agus lánaí dúnta. Coinneofar an rochtain áitiúil agus éigeandála i gcónaí.

D’fhéadfadh roinnt bristeacha sa soláthar uisce a bheith ann le haghaidh tréimhsí gairide agus cinnteoidh an fhoireann tionscadail go dtabharfar fógra 48 n-uaire ar a laghad do chustaiméirí roimh aon bhristeacha sa soláthar uisce atá beartaithe.

Tuigimid go bhféadfadh an cineál oibre seo a bheith mí-oiriúnach agus déanfaidh na buíonta oibreacha a seacht ndícheall chun aon chur isteach mar thoradh ar na hoibreacha riachtanacha sin a íoslaghdú.

Will customers be affected by the works?

For the safe delivery of works, areas of work will be limited to short sections to minimise impact on customers. Traffic management may be in place during this time, with temporary traffic lights and a lane closure. 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.
