Malahide and Swords Water Supply Network Upgrade

Water Project

Irish Water is progressing with upgrade works as part of €21.7 million investment in the Howth, Malahide and Balbriggan Water Supply Schemes.

Irish Water, working in partnership with Fingal County Council, is working to improve the water supply for Malahide, Howth, Swords, Balbriggan and the surrounding areas.

Works on this essential project are progressing in accordance with the current Level 5 Covid 19 restrictions.

As part of this project, Irish Water will construct approximately 2.5 kilometres of water main between Swords and the Seamount Reservoir in Malahide. John Cradock Limited will be carrying out these works on behalf of Irish Water.

Irish Water is working proactively with our delivery partners and as part of a multi-agency working group to ensure that our construction works are carried out in a controlled and safe manner, in keeping with Government and HSE guidelines to protect workers, their families and the broader community.
