Dublin City Council

RPS, in joint venture with Veolia Water UK, was appointed by Dublin City Council to undertake the Feasibility Study and Preliminary Report. The JV was led by RPS with Veolia providing specialist technical inputs, particularly in relation to desalination technology.

The Preliminary Report builds on the initial Feasibility Study and the first phase of Strategic Environmental Assessment, which established the framework for the evaluations of the River Shannon and Irish Sea sources as potential solutions. The overriding purpose of the Preliminary Report was to recommend a new sustainable source of drinking water for the Dublin Region to meet anticipated demand growth in the Region to 2031 and beyond.
