Essential upgrade works are nearing completion at Staleen Water Treatment Plant in order to safeguard the water supply for customers in South Louth and East Meath

Works to upgrade the Staleen Water Treatment Plant have been ongoing since September 2017 and are nearing completion.

Irish Water would like to advise customers that essential upgrade works are scheduled to take place at Staleen Water Treatment Plant from 9am until 3pm on Tuesday next, 14 January.

“The production capacity at the plant will be reduced to accommodate these essential works and water supply to homes and businesses in South Louth and East Meath will be partially dependent on storage in the reservoirs” a spokesperson said.

“The storage available in the reservoirs should be adequate to maintain water supply for the duration of the necessary works.”

Irish Water is encouraging customers to conserve water while these essential works are underway by not running taps needlessly, taking showers instead of baths and to postpone using dishwashers and washing machines where possible.

Following the completion of the works at the plant it may take a number of hours for normal water supply to resume for all customers. Irish Water is working closely with Louth and Meath County Councils to minimize any potential impact on customers.

Irish Water will continue to provide notice in advance of any potential supply interruption associated with the upgrade works. Information will be provided to all Louth and Meath media outlets and issued to elected representatives. Information will also be provided via and Irish Water’s social media channels.

The upgrade to the water treatment plant forms part of a wider Irish Water investment of €19 million in the Drogheda, South Louth and East Meath Water Supply Scheme. This significant investment also included the construction of a new 2km pipeline to replace the watermain which burst twice in a year. Irish Water commenced works on the pipeline in April 2018 and it was completed in December 2018, minimising the risk of future bursts.

The upgraded water treatment plant coupled with the new pipeline and other smaller projects that are being delivered by Irish Water will ensure the delivery of a safe, secure and reliable water supply to homes and businesses in Drogheda, South Louth and East Meath.
