Enfield Water Treatment Plant Treated Water Storage Project

Irish Water is progressing plans to safeguard the water supply to homes and businesses in the Enfield area with the construction of a new Treated Water Storage reservoir.

Irish Water, working in partnership with Meath County Council, has signed a new construction contract with Coffey Construction Limited to build a new storage reservoir at the Enfield Water Treatment Plant. This essential project involves the construction of a new 300m³ covered treated water storage reservoir that will help to safeguard the water supply to homes and businesses in the Enfield area.

The new Treated Water Storage Reservoir will provide storage of water supply in the event of an interruption at the Enfield Water Treatment Plant, providing increased resilience on the Enfield network and minimising the impact an unplanned outage may have on customers.
