Upgrade works on the water network in the Inverin, to cut down on outages, are taking place this summer.
Irish Water has begun working on replacing approximately halk a kilometre of old, leaky water mains in Inverin.
The project is meant to reduce the impact of outages on homes in the area, and cut down on the amount of water lost through leaks.
The works involve the replacement of old water mains from Bóithrín na Ceartán towards the R336 Spiddal to Inverin Road.
Gerry O’Donnell of Irish Water said, “Working in partnership with Galway County Council, we have prioritised leakage reduction works to those areas which need it most.”
“Replacing these pipes is a first step in tackling water pressure, supply and leakage issues which affect some homes and businesses in the Inverin area.”
“The works will not only reduce the amount of drinking water lost to leakage, it will also significantly improve water supply for the local community.”
These upgrade works are due to be completed by the end of July.
Traffic management will be in place to facilitate the works however local and emergency traffic will be maintained at all times.
