The North Fringe Water Supply Scheme


The North and North-Eastern areas of Dublin, together with South Fingal, Baldoyle, Sutton and Howth, had experienced a declining water service for many years. In addition, there has been a significant increase in development and this requires significant additional water infrastructure.

The North Fringe Water Supply Scheme involves the construction of 36km of watermains from Cappagh Cross to Baldoyle and a major ground level reservoir and high-level water tower at Sillogue. The scheme will also create a new trunk 'Ring Main' connecting the network from different sources. This scheme will improve the water supply and water pressure in the North City and South Fingal areas.

Construction of the North Fringe Water Supply Scheme commenced in 2004. 

The North Fringe Water Supply Scheme is estimated to cost in the region of €55 million and is funded by the National


Infrastructure to be delivered under the North Fringe Water Supply Scheme includes:

  • Contract 3   Pipeline from Cappagh Cross to Santry Demesne, including connection to city network Mobhi Road.
  • Contract 5   North City Arterial Watermain, Pipeline from Baldoyle to Fairview.
  • Contract 6   Water tower, pumping station and ground level reservoir at Sillogue, adjacent to the M50.
  • Contract 7   Pipeline from Santry Demesne to Baldoyle.
