Irish Water Leakage Reduction Programme Progresses Across Donegal

Construction News Image
Irish Water is progressing its Leakage Reduction Programme across County Donegal as the utility prepares to repair ageing water mains in Dunwiley, Stranorlar.

More than 14km problematic water mains have already been replaced across the county to improve security of supply and reduce high levels of leakage.

Construction firm Farrans will begin work to replace over 1.2km of water mains with high density polyethylene (plastic) pipes in Dunwiley on 15 April. This section of works will take place along Dunwiley Road, between the N13 and the Old Letterkenny Road.


Declan Cawley, Regional Lead for the Leakage Reduction Programme, said: "Replacing these ageing water mains will not only reduce the high levels of leakage, but it will also improve security of water supply, as well as improving the quality of the water.

"We would like to thank local residents and businesses for their ongoing cooperation as we work together to deliver these improvements and Donegal County Council for their continuing efforts in delivering this programme of works."

The Dunwiley works are expected to be completed by July 2019.
