Irish Water is working to replace over 1 kilometre of problematic water mains along the Donore Road and in the Donore Industrial Estate with high density plastic pipes.

Irish Water is working to replace over 1 kilometre of problematic water mains along the Donore Road and in the Donore Industrial Estate with high density plastic pipes.

Works will also involve laying new water service connections from the public water mains to customers’ property boundaries and connecting it to the customers’ water supply.

Irish Water (IW) says the work is necessary to reduce high levels of leakage, frequency of bursts and provide a more reliable water supply for the community.

These works have commenced in line with current Government and HSE COVID-19 guidance, and will be carried out by GMC Utilities Group Limited on behalf of Irish Water.

IW is warning that short-term interruptions to the water supply may be necessary but has said they will ensure that customers are given advanced notice prior to any planned supply disruptions.

To facilitate the safe delivery of the works, traffic management will be in place. Diversion routes will be clearly signposted and emergency and restricted local access will be maintained. Irish Water and Louth County Council regret any inconvenience these necessary works may cause.

Matt Thomson, Irish Water’s Regional Lead, said “These works are vital to ensure a more secure water supply to homes and businesses in Drogheda and are part of a significant investment by Irish Water to safeguard the water supply.

“We understand this type of work can be inconvenient and we will ensure our work crews make every effort to minimise any disruption these works may cause.”

The Irish Water customer care helpline is open 24/7 on 1800 278 278 and they can also be contacted on Twitter @IWCare with any queries.
