Water Supply Project Eastern and Midlands Region

In January 2014, Irish Water assumed statutory responsibility for the provision of public water services from 34 local authorities. This included the transfer of responsibility for the Water Supply Project Eastern and Midlands Region (WSP) from Dublin City Council who have managed the project on behalf of the Department of Environment, Community and Local Government since 2004. The project is now known as the Water Supply Project Eastern and Midlands Region, and it is currently in the project planning stage.

Air Pollution

What We Do

We investigate complaints about a range of emissions from premises in the Dublin city area under the Air Pollution Act 1987 .  In some cases, a warning letter may resolve the problem. However, further investigation and site visits may be required in order to establish nuisance, and resolve the complaint.

Types of Noise

Construction site causing noise

We investigate complaints regarding noise nuisance caused by construction sites.  Construction sites, by their very nature, can create a great deal of noise, with some activities e.g. pile driving, causing particular disturbance.  The aim of our investigation is to determine compliance with the principles of best practice with regard to the minimisation of noise from the site.
