Irish Water to redevelop old mains in North Cork

Irish Water is set to replace old water mains with a backyard lead service connection in Charleville.

It’s hoped the replacement will lower the risk of leakages and bursts in the community.

The works are due to commence next week, and will provide around 90 homes in the Holy Cross Place area with a more reliable water supply.


Speaking about the project, Steven Blennerhassett, Regional Delivery Lead said:

“Irish Water would like to thank all customers in Holy Cross Place who have engaged with us and assisted us in the provision of our backyard services programme which will not only result in significant water savings but will also reduce the number of bursts and outages impacting customers. These projects are only successful if all customers on a shared water connection support and facilitate these vital works so that the old and leaking mains can be decommissioned.”

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

Where water mains are being constructed traffic management may be in place during this time, however, local and emergency traffic will be maintained at all times.
