Portmarnock Wastewater Project

Wastewater Project

Progressing plans to upgrade Portmarnock Bridge pumping station.

The existing wastewater pumping station at Portmarnock Bridge operates at full capacity. This means that during storms, the system is overloaded and can overflow to the Sluice River. To reduce the risk of this, we plan to build a replacement pumping station with over twice the capacity of the existing station that includes storm water storage and new sewer network assets.
