Irish Water says that Castlerea homes and businesses can look forward to a more reliable water supply with water mains replacement works due to begin in the coming days.
Working in partnership with Roscommon County Council, Irish Water will replace almost 300 metres of old water mains in Willsbrook, Castlerea, with new, high density polyethylene (plastic) pipes.
The works along the N60 will prevent the loss of treated water underground and will reduce the instances of bursts and water outages.
New water service connections, from the public water main to customers’ boundaries, will be installed and where the existing service connections outside boundaries are lead, they too will be replaced.
Farrans Construction Ltd, working on behalf of Irish Water, will carry out the works, which are due to be completed in November.
In order to progress the works, short term outages may be required but to minimise impact on customers, notice of outages will be given and areas of work will be limited to short sections.
Irish Water’s customer care helpline 1800 278 278 is open 24/7 and customers can also contact Twitter @IWCare with any queries.
