Water mains replacement in Gorey

By Dan Walsh

Irish Water announced today that working in partnership with Wexford County Council it plans to replace over 700 metres of problematic water mains in St. Waleran’s, Gorey. The project is being delivered as part of Irish Water’s National Leakage Reduction Programme.

The works, which are being carried out by Shareridge Utilities Ltd on behalf of Irish Water, will take place along the Ballytegan Road, just south of the entrance to St. Waleran’s House, and will continue through the St. Waleran’s development site with an expected completion date of January 2023.

Highlighting the importance of this upgrade for the local community, Joe Carroll, Leakage Reduction Programme Regional Lead at Irish Water, told WexfordLocal.com today; “We are delighted to be making significant progress with essential upgrades to the water supply in Gorey. Not only will these improvements help to reduce the amount of water lost through leakage but will also ensure a safe and reliable water supply for the new housing developments planned for the area. During this project there may be some short-term water outages and the project team will ensure that customers are given a minimum of 48 hours’ notice prior to any planned water outages.”

 Mr. Carroll added; “Irish Water would like to thank the local community in St.Waleran’s, Gorey, in advance for their patience and co-operation while we complete these essential upgrade works which will future-proof the water supply for the area.”

To facilitate the safe delivery of these works some traffic management may be in place throughout the duration of the project but local and emergency traffic will be always maintained. The areas of work will be limited to short sections to minimize any impact on the local community.
