Limerick City Sewer Surveys

Wastewater Project

Commencing works to survey over 22 km of sewer and 2,000 manholes in Limerick City.

Irish Water, working in partnership with Limerick City and County Council and RPS Group Limited, is to undertake surveys of the existing sewer network in Limerick City. Precision Industrial Services Limited is working on our behalf to deliver these surveys, which form part of the Limerick Drainage Area Plan project.

The surveys are the first of its scale carried out in Limerick City and will provide the basis to build a hydraulic model to assess the capacity, condition and performance level of the sewer network.
