County Louth Sewer Surveys

Wastewater Project

Progressing with surveys of over 6km of sewer and 285 manholes in Dundalk and Blackrock Co. Louth.

Irish Water, working in partnership with Louth County Council and Arup, is currently undertaking surveys of the existing sewer network in Dundalk and Blackrock. McBreen Environmental Services Limited is working on our behalf to deliver these surveys.

The surveys are almost complete and are the first of its scale carried out in these areas. These surveys will provide the basis to build a hydraulic model to assess the capacity, condition and performance level of the sewer network.
