Director - Water
RPS supported Dublin City Council & Fingal Co. Council on the Dublin Bay Project, the largest of its type in Ireland. This project involved a suite of contracts to eliminate foul flows from the North Dublin catchment to the sea at Howth.
RPS formed the lead consultant on this project with a review of the existing catchment in the early 1990’s, culminating in the commissioning in 2011 of the final element of the works; the reversal of foul flows from Howth to a new pumping station at Sutton using a variety of open cut and tunnelled techniques.
From there, all flows are pumped forward to Ringsend Waste Water Treatment works, via a 1400mm diameter sub-sea pipeline constructed as part of the works. At 11km long, this pipeline is the largest one of its type in Europe.
Dublin Bay Project – North Dublin Drainage Works
Dublin City Council / Fingal Co. Council
RPS were tasked with eliminating foul flows from the North Dublin catchment to the sea at Howth, Co. Dublin. This project presented a number of complex challenges associated with the reversal of foul flows. A number of significant environmental and archaeological constraints existed on the route, which crosses a busy shipping lane in Dublin port. In addition, beach foreshore sections and the close proximity to sensitive bird habitats around Bull Island had to be factored into the design.
RPS delivered the following solution for Dublin City Council & Fingal Co. Council:
