Kilkenny City Sewer Survey

Wastewater Project

Commencing works to survey over 22km of sewer and 2,300 manholes in Kilkenny City.

Irish Water, working in partnership with Kilkenny County Council, is to undertake a survey of the existing sewer network in Kilkenny City. RPS Environmental Management Limited is working on behalf of Irish Water to deliver this project. This is the first time surveys of this scale are being carried out in Kilkenny City and will provide the basis to assess the capacity, condition and performance level of the sewer network beneath the city.
