Liscarton Water Treatment Plant to Proudstown Reservoir Water Mains Replacement

Irish Water is progressing plans to replace 4km of watermains between Navan’s Water Treatment Plant at Liscarton and its storage reservoir at Proudstown. This investment will provide for future growth while providing resilience and security of supply for Navan.

Irish Water, working in partnership with Meath County Council, is progressing plans to replace 4 kilometres of 450mm diameter, asbestos cement rising main between Navan’s Water Treatment plant at Liscarton and its storage reservoir at Proudstown. The existing 46-year-old asbestos cement rising main between Liscarton Water Treatment Plant and Proudstown Reservoir has been subject to several bursts resulting in a loss of supply to the Navan area. This investment will provide for future growth while providing resilience and security of supply in the Navan Water Supply Zone.
