Water works continue in Inishowen 08.01.20

IRISH Water working in partnership with Donegal County Council is investing €12 million in the replacement and rehabilitation of approximately 40 kilometres of old water mains across the county. The works commenced in September 2018 and are progressing well. Once the works are complete customers will benefit from a reliable water supply reducing the instances of burst pipes and the amount of clean drinking water being lost through leaks.
Irish Water is replacing approximately 5km of ageing water mains at Three Trees, Quigley's Point and Cabry areas of Inishowen.
To date a total of approximately 36kms of new water mains have been installed in Donegal and reinstatement works completed include Three Trees in Inishowen (3.5km).
Works to replace approximately 6kms of ageing mains in other areas of the county are ongoing. Works will be completed at various stages throughout the first quarter of 2020 including Quigley’s Point and Cabry (1.5km).
Traffic management will be in operation during the works and residents and businesses in the affected areas will be notified ahead of the work commencing and provided with contact details should they have any questions.
Commenting on the works, Irish Water’s Capital Programme Regional Lead John McElwaine said: “The replacement and rehabilitation of approximately 40km of old water mains across County Donegal is a major step to ensuring a more reliable water supply is delivered to local residents and businesses. We thank the local community for their ongoing patience during these essential works.”
