Minister Hogan opens €15.6m Water Scheme water supply scheme

Phil Hogan, Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government opened the Sandyford High Level Water Scheme.

The Sandyford high level water supply scheme forms part of the Government's Water Services Investment Programme which aims to upgrade water and wastewater operations in Ireland. Its latest scheme is expected to tackle water shortages in Sandyford, Ballyogan, Stepaside, Kilternan and the surrounding areas.

It is also anticipated that the scheme will improve the quality and consistency of drinking water supplies for the area, with works including the construction of reservoirs in Stepaside Lane and Aikens village, and pumping stations in Aikens village and Sandyford industrial estate.
