Wexford County Council’s direct labour crew has recently completed works in Enniscorthy to improve water supply in the town.
Works began in October 2021 to replace 1.5km of problematic mains in Rectory Road, St Senan’s Road and Templeshannon in the town.
New service connections were made for more than 70 residential properties, one large demand commercial property and further supply links were installed to allow continuity of supply in the event of an outage in the area.
The works were completed with minimal disruption to supply due to frequent engagement between the local residents and the Local Authority working on behalf of Irish Water. Newsletters were issued periodically for the duration of the project to residents with updates on progress and the upcoming works.
Irish Water has invested over €500 million between 2017 and the end of 2021 to reduce leakage and replace old pipes on the public water network.
