Stamullen Wastewater Upgrade Scheme

Wastewater Upgrade Scheme

Irish Water has published a Compulsory Purchase Order for the rights over lands required for the Stamullen Wastewater Upgrade Scheme.

Irish Water is working in partnership with Meath County Council to progress the delivery of this sewerage scheme.



  • Provide for the continued planned development and growth of Stamullen.
  • Improved water quality in the Delvin River.


  • Construction of a new pumping station at the existing Stamullen Wastewater Treatment Plant site.
  • Installation of approximately 6 kilometers of new pipework to connect to the Balbriggan sewer network at Cardy Rock, to pump wastewater to Balbriggan Wastewater Treatment Plant.

What are the next steps?

Consultations have been on-going with all landowners identified on the proposed scheme but, Irish Water have been unable to acquire all of the required wayleaves.

Given the importance of the project, Irish Water will now endeavour to acquire the wayleaves by way of Compulsory Purchase Order pursuant to the provisions of the Water Services Act, 2007 (as amended).

The timeline for the commencement of works is subject to the Compulsory Purchase Order statutory approvals. We will endeavour to keep you updated as the project progresses.
