A section of water mains in Cooraclare are to be replaced with works commencing on Tuesday (tomorrow).

Almost 1850m of “problematic water mains” in Tullabrack and Gower are to be replaced by Irish Water and Clare County Council as part of Irish Water’s National Leakage Reduction Programme. Early December has been set as the target for completion of the upgrade with Shareridge Ltd carrying out the work on Irish Water’s behalf.

Works will take place on the R483 Cooraclare Road, starting adjacent to Tullabrack Lough and running for approximately 1850m towards Cooraclare. The project also involves laying new water service connections from the public watermain to customers’ property boundaries and connecting it to the customers’ water supply. Where the existing service connections on the public side are lead these will be replaced as part of this improvement work.

Short-term outages may occur while the works are ongoing with customers to get a minimum of 48 hours notice prior to any planned impact.

Gerry O Donnell, Asset Delivery Regional Lead for Irish Water, explained: “The upgrading of these watermains will benefit the locals by strengthening and reinforcing the water network, hopefully leading to the reduction of drinking water that is lost due to leakage. It will minimising future disruptions to the communities water supply by reducing leakage and creating a more stable network – ultimately providing a better service and better water quality for all”.

He added: “To facilitate the safe delivery of the upgrades, there will be some traffic management in place, however local and emergency access will be maintained at all times. Areas of work will be limited to short sections to minimise impact on customers. Traffic management may be in place during this time. Local and emergency traffic will always be maintained”.
