Dublin Bay Contract - North Dublin Drainage Works


Dublin Bay Contract - North Dublin Drainage Works

Dublin City Council


The Dublin Bay Project was the largest urban drainage project ever undertaken in Ireland, providing for integrated networks and treatment at Ringsend for the whole Greater Dublin Catchment.

RPS oversaw all stages of planning, design, procurement and construction supervision for the North Dublin Works, comprising network sewers, Sutton Pumping Station and 11km subsea pipeline to Ringsend. These works service up to 400,000 population and cater for the medium term needs of the region including Dublin Airport and the North Fringe (Fingal / DCC) development areas.

The works include state of the art pumping and storage management, odour treatment, tunnels and the largest wastewater marine pipeline in Europe. It integrated the new works to the existing infrastructure of the area and eliminated a major untreated sewage discharge at Howth.
