Ringsend Wastewater Treatment Plant Milestone Event

Monday, February 12, 2018

Ringsend, the largest wastewater treatment plant in Ireland, serves the four Dublin Local Authority areas, along with parts of Co. Meath, and already operates 20% over capacity. With the population of the Greater Dublin Area predicted to continue growing by almost 300,000 over the next decade the  pressure  on the plant will grow significantly.

Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government, Eoghan Murphy, TD, today officially marked the start of work on a capacity upgrade, as a result of an €80 million investment by Irish Water at Ringsend.

This project is part of a larger investment of over €400 million euro by the National Utility, to ensure the Ringsend Wastewater Treatment Plant is not only capable of supporting the population of a growing European Capital, but also of meeting required environmental standards.

Other planned works include improvements in treatment processes, in order to meet required standards, set under the Urban Wastewater Treatment Directive. This additional work will be carried out subject to planning permission.
