Uisce Éireann, working in partnership with Wexford County Council, is replacing approximately 260 metres of aged water mains with new modern pipes along Ross Road in Enniscorthy.
The project, which will commence this week, will provide a more reliable water supply and reduce the amount of treated drinking water lost to leakage.
The works will also involve laying new water service connections from the public water main in the road to customers’ property boundaries and connecting it to the customers’ water supply.
Joe Carroll, Regional Delivery Lead at Uisce Éireann, explained; “Old and damaged water mains are a huge source of leakage and continue to impact communities right across Ireland, causing low pressure and supply disruption. Replacing these old water mains in poor condition will eliminate existing leaks and significantly reduce the amount of clean drinking water lost into the ground.”
Where water mains are being constructed traffic management will be in place during this time. Local and emergency traffic will be always maintained.
These works are being carried out by Shareridge Civil Engineering in partnership with Wexford
