Lead Pipe Replacement Grant

Printer-friendly version

If your home has lead pipes and plumbing that need to be replaced, or you have a recent water quality test result that shows above normal levels of lead in your water supply, you may qualify for a Lead Pipe replacement Grant.

In order to make an application  for this grant, you must first apply  for the Irish Water Customer Opt – In Lead  Pipe Replacement Scheme (Both the Private side and Public side sets of pipes must be replaced for your drinking water to have a lead level that will probably be below the legal limit). 

For information on Irish Water’s Customer Opt-In Lead Pipe Replacement Scheme, visit www.water.ie/lead or call Irish Water on 1850 278 278 or +353 1 707 2828

The level of grant you may qualify for from Dublin City Council is based on your gross household income.

To see if your household qualifies please read the Department of the Environment Lead Grant Scheme Information Leaflet 2017 and the  Lead Grant Scheme Supply Pipes Guidance Notes 2017.

Then, if you meet the criteria please print out and fill in the Lead Grant Scheme Application Form 2017 , and return it to Elaine McGrory, SLA Administration Unit, Block 1,  Floor 6, Civic Offices, Wood Quay, Dublin 8. D08 RF3F.
