Corina Johnston, Labour local area representative welcomes the water upgrades to be carried out by Uisce Éireann in the locality, writes Rose Barrett.

“750 meters of old pipes are to be replaced following on from the successful replacement of new watermains along Turvey Road,” said Ms Johnston.

Safeguarding the water supply in North County Dublin is a vital focus for Uisce Éireann with works underway as part of its national Leakage Reduction Programme to drive down leakage and provide a more reliable water supply for homes and businesses in Donabate.

Uisce Éireann, working in partnership with Fingal County Council, is replacing almost 750 meters of aged water mains with new modern pipes in Donabate. These works follow on from the recent successful replacement of 750 meters of new, state-of-the-art water mains along Turvey Road which is increasing operational efficiency along the water network for this bustling coastal town.

The project, which commenced this week, will provide a more reliable water supply, improve water quality, and reduce the amount of treated drinking water lost to leakage. The works are a critical step in conserving this precious resource and reducing high levels of leakage which have been a significant source of disruption and interruptions for customers.

Ms Johnston said the project will see works taking place in Chapel View/New Road from the junction of Main Street (L2170) to the junction with the New Portrane Distributor Road (R126). The works will also involve laying new water service connections from the public water main in the road to customers’ property boundaries and connecting it to the customers’ water supply.
