Kilcummin Sewerage Scheme

Uisce Éireann is continuing works to deliver the Kilcummin Sewerage Scheme in County Kerry

Uisce Éireann, working in partnership with Kerry County Council, is providing a new sewer collection system for Kilcummin village. This scheme will reduce the reliance on on-site treatment systems such as septic tanks and package treatment plants. The project is being delivered by Coffey Construction.

In Progress

There is a change to the pipeline route previously proposed, in that part of the pipeline will now continue in public roads, including the Kilcummin and Killarney Roads, instead of going through some private lands.
