Irish Water set to begin D15 project

Primary works will be contained within an area of Waterville Park.

IRISH Water is set to begin works on the Blanchardstown Regional Drainage Scheme that it says is designed to support development and safeguard the environment.

The primary works will be contained within an area of Waterville Park to enable the construction of the underground storm water management facility and pumping station.

Along Tolka Valley Park, 3km of new wastewater network will be constructed by tunnelling methods, to ensure that the impact on the park is kept to a minimum.

Irish Water says it will notify the local community and elected representatives in advance of any works and provide further updates, along with contact details for the Project Team, throughout the project.

The project represents an investment of almost €88 million in the Blanchardstown region.

“This project is needed to provide Blanchardstown and surrounding areas with the infrastructure needed to support the building of houses, schools, attract new industry and allow companies to expand and grow,” said John Joyce of Irish Water.
