Leakage Reduction


​A Reliable Water Supply

  • Replacement of water mains and service connections will reduce the instances of bursts and water outages and will ensure a reliable supply of water to customers and local businesses in the area

Reduced Leaks

  • Replacement of water mains and service connections will eliminate existing leaks and reduce the amount of clean drinking water lost into the ground

Improved Operation and Maintenance

  • These works will deliver cost savings by providing improved water network operation that will require less maintenance in the future


  • The works will involve the decommissioning and replacement of approximately 2.5 kilometres of ageing water mains along the Cockhill Road, Stamullen
  • The existing pipes will be replaced with new modern high density polyethylene plastic pipes
  • The works will also involve laying new water service connections from the public water main in the road to customers’ property boundaries and connecting it to the water supply
  • The works are planned to commence on 27 June 2018 and are expected to take approximately 2 months to complete
