Liscarton Water Treatment Plant

Water Project

Irish Water has completed upgrade works to continue to provide a safe and reliable drinking water supply for over 31,000 people in the Navan area.

Irish Water, working in partnership with Meath County Council, has completed works to improve the water supply at the Liscarton Water Treatment Plant, which serves in excess of 31,000 people in the Navan and Mid-Meath area, including Dunderry, Kilberry and Gibbstown. These works were carried out by Veolia Water Ireland Limited on behalf of Irish Water.

The project provided extensive upgrades to address the risks to water quality and provide sludge treatment facilities on site. The upgrade works were completed in March 2021 and the supply has now been removed from the EPA’s Remedial Action List.
