Inishowen Regional Water Supply Scheme

Water Supply Project

This €5.8 million investment addressed the water quality issues in the Greencastle Water Supply by transferring water from the Pollan Dam Water Treatment Plant into the East Inishowen supply area.

These works enabled water to be supplied into the Greencastle area and allowed for the decommissioning and rationalisation of the Greencastle Water Treatment Plant.
