Water Mains Renewals Progress In Donegal

Construction News Image
A project to replace ageing water mains is progressing well across County Donegal.

The latest phase of works in Cashel, Gortahork, will see a section of the L-11533 Ardsbeg Water Treatment Plant Road closed from 8am on Monday 11 November until 6pm on Friday 20 December.

Emergency and local access for residents will be maintained at all times. An alternative route is in place which will be clearly sign-posted.

These works will involve the decommissioning and replacement of a section of old and damaged water pipes with modern, high density polyethelene (plastic) pipes. This forms part of Irish Water's national Leakage Reduction Programme which will reduce the high level of leakage across the country by fixing or replacing ageing water mains over the next four years.

Explaining further, Irish Water's Leakage Reduction Programme Regional Lead Declan Cawley said: "Irish Water is committed to safeguarding the water supply for customers in Gortahork. These works will involve the decommissioning and replacement of a section of water main on the L-11535 Ardsbeg Water Treatment Plant Road, Cashel, Gortahork and include laying water service connections from the public water main in the road to customers' property boundaries and connecting them to the customer's water supply. Where the existing service connections on the public side are lead these will be replaced as part of this improvement work."
