On 1st January 2014 Irish Water took over responsibility for managing Ireland’s water and wastewater investment and maintenance programmes. On that date, Irish Water also took over the management of the Greater Dublin Drainage Project from Fingal County Council. Since taking responsibility for GDD, Irish Water has studied all of the technical and consultation reports prepared to date and is progressing the studies required to prepare the planning application to be lodged towards the end of 2016.

The preferred project solution for GDD was identified in 2013, under Fingal County Council, and following the assessment of alternative site options. Irish Water is progressing the studies required to prepare the planning application for the project.
