Our water infrastructure is in need of investment to keep pace with increasing demands and to ensure a constant supply of high quality water.
Despite the good work of the Local Authorities, a lack of investment at a national level has given rise to weaknesses in the water system infrastructure resulting in high leakage rates, varying quality standards and pressures on supply.
As the national water utility, Irish Water will make investment decisions on a national basis. This will ensure that we have a water system that can meet the challenges and demands of the future.
We are working to repair and upgrade the water network to develop a modern water network which can accommodate all our business development needs. Sustainable water services are key to supporting the social and economic growth of the country.
