Bray People - - NEWS -

Ir­ish Water, in part­ner­ship with Dún Laoghaire – Rath­down County Coun­cil, has sub­mit­ted a Com­pul­sory Pur­chase Or­der (CPO) to An Bord Pleanála for the de­liv­ery of the Old Con­naught and Wood­brook Water Sup­ply Scheme.

The CPO, if granted, is for lands re­lat­ing to the con­struc­tion of new cov­ered reser­voirs, a pump­ing sta­tion, and a con­trol build­ing.

The project, when com­pleted, will im­prove drink­ing water qual­ity and se­cu­rity of sup­ply for South­east Dublin (Dún Laoghaire – Rath­down) and North Wick­low.

The scheme will en­sure that drink­ing water com­plies with all reg­u­la­tions. The project in­cludes the con­struc­tion of two new cov­ered reser­voirs and a pump­ing sta­tion at Bal­ly­man, as well as as­so­ci­ated sur­face water drainage, pipe­lines and other works.

Paul Hickey or Ir­ish Water, said: ‘ The con­struc­tion of new reser­voirs at Bal­ly­man and the in­stal­la­tion of new trunk water mains for the Old Con­naught Wood­brook Water Sup­ply Scheme will pro­vide a more se­cure and re­silient sup­ply of water to the ar­eas af­fected in North Wick­low and South Dublin.

‘ This CPO will en­sure Ir­ish Water can progress with this project, which is part of our on­go­ing in­vest­ment in Ire­land’s water in­fra­struc­ture.’
