Wexford Sewer Survey

Wastewater Project

Commencing works to survey over 17km of sewer and 2,549 manholes in Wexford Town.

Irish Water, working in partnership with Wexford County Council, is to undertake a survey of the existing sewer network in Wexford Town. McBreen Environmental Limited is working on behalf of Irish Water to deliver this project. This is the first time surveys of this scale carried out in Wexford Town and will provide the basis to assess the capacity, condition and performance level of the sewer network.



  • Allow us to build a hydraulic model of the existing sewer network under Wexford Town
  • Determine the condition, capacity and performance level of the sewer network
  • Feed into a national programme of sewer network models across the country
  • Allow us to prioritise sewers in need of repair and upgrade on a national basis


  • Undertake surveys and data collection of the sewer network and manholes
  • May require access to private property to complete manhole surveys
  • Some traffic management around manholes will be required for a limited time to facilitate the survey
  • Traffic management will be managed in co-ordination with Wexford County Council, with limited or no traffic disruption expected as a result of these works
