When completed, these works will provide a safer and more secure water supply to homes and businesses in Dublin 15.
Works will start on Monday, March 1, 2021, and are scheduled to be completed within 8 weeks. Works are being carried out by Carty Contractors Limited on behalf of Irish Water and will be delivered in adherence with the current government and HSE advice on Covid-19.
In order to safely facilitate the works, two water outages are scheduled to take place from 8 am to 8 pm on Wednesday 3 March and Tuesday 9 March 2021.
While these works are ongoing customers in Dunboyne, Loughsallagh, Clonee, Stirling Road, Damastown, Littlepace, Williamstown, Allendale, Ongar, Mount Symon, Portersgate, Hartstown and Lohunda will experience a water outage. Following the completion of the works, it may take a number of hours for the network to refill and for the normal water supply to return to all impacted customers.
These works are part of a national upgrade programme and will involve the construction of a Pressure Reducing Valve (PRV) Chamber and other essential works of the existing pipeline which runs through Deerhaven Park. These chambers will allow significant water conservation and savings to be made in the Dublin 15 area as well as improved water pressure for residents. Works will include the installation of key water infrastructure in the green area of Deerhaven. The park area will be fully reinstated following the works. All chambers will be made flush with the existing ground and no items will protrude over the ground.
Furthermore, works involving the installation of electrical ducting will be carried out close to the existing Kiosk on the green. The park area will be fully reinstated following the works. All chambers will be made flush with the existing ground and no items will protrude over the ground.
Irish Water continues to work at this time, with our Local Authority partners, contractors and others to safeguard the health and well-being of both staff and the public and to ensure the continuity of critical drinking water and wastewater services. Irish Water would like to remind people to follow the HSE COVID-19 advice and ensure frequent handwashing.
