Work underway to replace ageing water mains in Inishowen

first_imgIrish Water has started work to replace ageing water pipes at Three Trees, Quigleys Point and the Cabry areas of Inishowen.The 5km long water mains run along the R238 regional road and L-1951-1 local road via Quigleys Point Village and will also extend into side roads to facilitate connections to existing water mains.It is understood that removing the existing old cast iron from the public water network and replacing them with new plastic pipes will reduce the risk of contamination. Meanwhile, it is hoped that replacing the ageing water mains and service connections will reduce the instances of bursts and water outages and will ensure a reliable supply of water to customers and local businesses in the area.These works will deliver cost savings by providing improved water network operation that will require less maintenance in the future.It is expected that initial section of pipe installation and temporary reinstatement works to Quigley’s Point will last for approximately nine weeks with works from Quigley’s point towards Redcastle to follow on from this for approximately eight weeks.A spokesperson for Irish Water said: Works have commenced and are progressing well. “The works may involve some short-term water shut offs and the project team will ensure that customers are given a minimum of 48 hours notice prior to any planned water shutoffs.“Traffic management will be in place during this time. Local and emergency traffic will be maintained at all times.“We understand that this type of work can be inconvenient and works crews will make every effort to minimise any disruption these necessary works may cause.“The contractor will be monitoring traffic build-up during peak times in the morning and evening and will switch to a manned stop/go control should there be an unacceptable build-up of traffic.”Work underway to replace ageing water mains in Inishowen was last modified: October 4th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
