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 planning stage of the Greater Dublin Drainage Project (GDD) from Fingal County Council (which previously led the project on behalf of the GDA local authorities).
Under Fingal Co. Co., following the assessment of alternative site options, the preferred project solution for GDD was identified and Irish Water is now progressing the studies required to prepare the planning application for the project.
Irish Water is statutorily responsible for both investing and operating water services infrastructure in its role as a provider of drinking water and wastewater services to household, commercial and industrial customers in Ireland who are not served by Group Water Schemes.
The GDD project team comprises Jacobs Engineering (Ireland) Ltd and TOBIN Consulting Engineers as lead technical consultants and RPS Project Communications provide stakeholder engagement and communications for the project.
