Dublin Region Water Conservation Project

Printer-friendly version

The Dublin Region Water Conservation Project was led by Dublin City Council and along with Wicklow, Dun Laoghaire/Rathdown, South Dublin, Fingal and Kildare County Councils put in place a network of water meters and telemetry to track the distribution of water throughout the Dublin Region. The project costing in the region of  €47 million reduced leakage from 42.5% to 28%.

The second phase of project is the Watermains Rehabilitation Project. Many of our Watermains are over 80 years old and have come to the end of their useful life. The Department of the Environment provided a further  €119 million to fund the Rehabilitation of the watermains in the Greater Dublin Region.


The purpose of the Dublin Region Watermains Rehabilitation Project is to conserve water in the Greater Dublin Region by the rehabilitation of those areas of the network that yielded the greatest water savings in the most cost effective manner.
