Uisce Éireann, working in partnership with Cork County Council, is progressing a significant project to upgrade and improve the water supply in Rathcoole – Near Millstreet in North Cork.
The project is due to commence in March 2024 involves the replacement of approximately 1.7 km of aged water mains in the area. When completed, the upgrade will provide a more reliable water supply and reduce the amount of treated drinking water lost to leakage. The works are a critical step in conserving our precious resource and reducing high levels of leakage which have been a significant source of disruption and outages for customers.
North Cork Fine Gael Councillor John Paul O’Shea welcomed the works by saying “The delivery of these essential works will help provide a safer, more secure water supply for Rathcoole, by minimising the frequency of bursts and improving the resilience of the network. I would like to thank in advance the community in Rathcoole for their patience and cooperation during the works, we know based on previous experiences that the short-term inconvenience will be overshadowed by the lasting benefits.”
