The works will involve the decommissioning and replacement of old and damaged cast iron water mains along Abbey Street, Kilrock Road and Balscadden Road most of which is in place since the mid 1900’s.
The existing problematic pipes will be replaced with new modern high density polyethylene (plastic) pipes. The works will also involve laying new water service connections from the public water main in the street to customers’ property boundaries connecting it to the customers’ water supply. Where there is lead on the public side of the service connection this will be removed as part of the improvement works.
