Upgrade On Local Water Supply Reaches Completion
Irish Water, in partnership with Dublin City Council and Fingal County Council, has completed a major project to upgrade the water supply in North County Dublin, improving the water supply for almost 21,000 homes and businesses.
The project represents an investment of approximately €22m by Irish Water to upgrade and improve water quality and supply across Howth, Malahide, Swords, Balbriggan and surrounding areas.
The completed project will also enable “much needed” social and economic growth and the new infrastructure in Howth has achieved substantial savings, according to the Irish Water, which estimates a reduction of 60% in energy consumption since October..
The project involved the construction of almost 15km of new trunk water mains including three tunnelled crossings underneath the Howth DART Line. Upgrades to modernise the pumping stations at Corr Bridge and Dungriffen Reservoir were also carried out as well as substantial modifications works to the existing water supply infrastructure on the peninsula.
