Irish Water invests over €820,000 in Rathmullen Water Supply


Irish Water is investing over €820,000 in a water mains project which the company says, will ensure a clean and secure water supply for the 591 people served by the Rathmullan Water Supply.

This supply is on the Environmental Protection Agency’s Remedial Action List for high levels of THMs.

These works are being undertaken to remove any risk posed by THMs and ultimately remove the supply from the EPA’s list.

The works which are currently being carried out include the installation and commissioning of over 3km of water main in the Rathmullan area.

Two water main booster pumping stations will also be constructed at Milford and Milbrook.

The water mains replacement is broken down into 570m of water mains to be replaced in Milford, 1,460m from Ray to Rathmullan and 1,220m at Millbrook.

In a statement Irish Water’s Capital Programme Regional Lead John McElwaine said that the company is working in partnership with Donegal County Council to continually improve drinking water quality throughout the county.

They are working towards a summer completion date for the project.
