Sligo Residents Benefit From More Secure Water Supply

Construction News Image
Farrans Construction is getting ready to begin improvement works on the water supply in County Sligo.

Beginning in mid-January, the construction firm will replace 100m of old cast iron watermains along Tobergal Lane to provide a more safe and secure water supply for customers in the area. These works are being delivered on behalf of Irish Water and Sligo County Council.

Outlining the benefits of these works Declan Cawley, Irish Water, explained: "These essential works will benefit customers in the area by replacing ageing cast iron watermains with new and improved plastic pipes. The immediate impact of this work will see an improvement to water quality in the area, as well as reduced leakage rates and unplanned interruptions when bursts occur.

"Upon completion, there will also be significant improvements in the network performance and levels of customer service in this area in terms of efficiency and security of supply."

During the works pedestrian access to Tobergal Lane will be maintained. To minimise impact on the local community the works are being undertaken in advance of the Sligo City Public Realm Enhancement project planned by Sligo County Council. Furthermore, the works will not impact on the works already completed as part of the O'Connell Street Regeneration project.  

The works may involve some short-term water interruptions and the project team will ensure that customers are given a minimum of 48 hours' notice prior to any planned water interruptions.

These water supply improvements are due for completion in February.
