Buncrana water works due to get underway 02.02.22

WATER mains upgrade works are due to get underway in the coming weeks in Buncrana. Irish Water is replacing approximately 900m of old water mains in Castlenacor. The works will reduce the high level of leakage and burst pipes in the area.
Declan Cawley from Irish Water explains the need for water mains upgrade works in Castlenacor, Buncrana.
Outlining the benefits of these works Declan Cawley, Irish Water, explained: “These essential works will benefit customers by replacing ageing water mains with new and improved modern pipes. The new water mains will reduce the high level of leakage in the area and will increase security of supply and reliability.
“The works may involve some short-term water interruptions and the project team will ensure that customers are given a minimum of 48 hours’ notice prior to any planned water interruptions. 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.

The works are scheduled to commence in early February 2022. Farrans Construction are contracted to carry out the work on behalf of Irish Water which are due for completion in April.

Customers can phone Irish Water on 1800 278 278 if they have any questions about the project or check out the Water Supply Updates section of the Irish Water website for regular updates.
