Irish Water turns sod for the €88m Blanchardstown Regional Drainage Scheme to support development and safeguard our environment

Monday, September 30, 2019

Irish Water, working in partnership with Fingal County Council, has begun work on the Blanchardstown Regional Drainage Scheme in Waterville Park in the Tolka Valley. The delivery of this significant infrastructure project will support existing and future residential and commercial development and will safeguard the environment in Blanchardstown and surrounding areas.
The existing wastewater network was constructed in the 1970s and since then the area it serves has expanded considerably. The project will upgrade the existing wastewater network in Mulhuddart and Castleknock, as well as a number of towns in Meath including Dunboyne, Clonee, Ashbourne and Ratoath. These works have been carefully planned so as to minimise any impact on the public.

The primary works will be contained within an area of Waterville Park. This will enable the construction of the underground storm water management facility and pumping station. Along Tolka Valley Park, 3km of new wastewater network will be constructed by tunneling methods, to ensure that the impact on the park and its users is kept to a minimum.

This project represents an Irish Water investment of almost €88 million in the Blanchardstown region. The works will be completed by Ward and Burke Construction Limited on behalf of Irish Water and are scheduled to be completed by 2023.
