Irish Water progressing with watermain improvement works to safeguard the water supply to homes and businesses in Brackenstown, Swords.

(22 September 2020) Irish Water working in partnership with Fingal County Council is progressing with the construction of almost 1.5km of new watermain along the Brackenstown Road in order to safeguard the water supply to homes and businesses in the area. 

The works, being delivered by GMC Utilities on behalf of Irish Water are already underway and are scheduled to be completed in mid-October. The works are taking place along Brackenstown Road from the St. Cronan’s Avenue Junction to the Church Road junction and are being delivered under the Irish Water Leakage Reduction Programme.  

Areas of work will be limited to short sections to minimise impact on customers. Traffic management will be in place during this time. Local and emergency traffic will be maintained at all times. 

The works may involve some short-term water shut offs and the project team will ensure that customers are given a minimum of 48 hours notice prior to any planned water shut offs.  

We understand that this type of work can be inconvenient and works crews will make every effort to minimise any disruption these necessary works cause.

This project is one example of how Irish Water is working in partnership with Fingal County Council to reduce leaks every day.  Fixing leaks can be complicated with over 63,000km of water pipe in Ireland.  Our National Leakage Reduction Programme helps provide a more reliable water supply to Irish communities, reduce high levels of leakage and improve water quality. 

Irish Water is working 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. 

Irish Water is working proactively with our delivery partners and as part of a multi-agency working group to ensure that our construction works are carried out in a controlled and safe manner, in keeping with Government and HSE guidelines to protect workers, their families and the broader community. 

Irish Water and Fingal Council Council regrets any inconvenience caused. Our customer care helpline is open 24/7 on 1850 278 278 and customers can also contact us on Twitter @IWCare with any queries. For updates visit https://www.water.ie/water-supply/supply-and-service-update/
