Drogheda Wastewater Improvement Project

Uisce Éireann Growth and Development Programme

Uisce Éireann, in partnership with Louth County Council is upgrading the wastewater network at Greenhills, Drogheda, Co. Louth to support social and economic growth.

The works involve the installation of almost 250 meters of new sewerage pipes and is part of a project to improve the capacity of the existing sewers and operational performance in the area.

These works are being carried out as part of Uisce Éireann’s Growth and Development Programme and are planned to commence in February 2023. These works will involve the replacement and upgrading of the existing sewer network, beginning at Greenhill Villas and terminating at North Strand south of the junction between the Drogheda Road, R167 and the Greenhills R899.

This project is being delivered to support existing and future developments within the community. It will improve the capacity of the existing wastewater network in the area, improving performance and reducing demands on the current network.

The works will be carried out on behalf of Uisce Éireann by GMC Utilities Ltd. and are expected to be completed by the end of 2023.
