National Disinfection Programme
A national programme of works to improve the quality of drinking water across the country
About this Project
We're investing €65 million to upgrade and standardise disinfection systems across the country. The programme involves over 864 water treatment plants, pumping stations, and reservoirs.
What is involved?
We’re currently planning improvement works for water treatment plants throughout the country. To date, we’ve already upgraded over 257 sites. The project is split into two phases.
Phase 1: Assess the water treatment plant
First we assess the condition and performance of the existing disinfection system. This is how we determine what works are needed to be undertaken to improve these water treatment plants.
Phase 2: Complete upgrade works
Works can include upgrades to: chemical storage and dosing infrastructure, ultraviolet disinfection systems, monitoring systems and/or process alarms.
We’re upgrading 864 water treatment plants, pumping stations and reservoirs nationwide as part of this programme. Explore the works taking place in your county.
