RPS have been the primary Consultant developing and delivering water supply and wastewater strategic and capital investment planning for the Dublin Region since 1995.
This has included water source development and augmentation at Ballymore Eustace and the Shannon, water conservation and efficiency including leakage control, water mains rehabilitation and pressure management, scheme expansion to Sandyford and parts of Wicklow, the Dublin Bay and North Fringe Sewerage Schemes.
This culminated in the drafting of a combined water, wastewater and flooding strategic plan in accordance with the requirements of the Water Services Act. It incorporates the output from the Greater Dublin Strategic Drainage study 2005 and 1996 Water Services Strategic Plan which was updated in 2000 and 2010 for the Water Supply Project Dublin Region (Shannon Scheme).

The Greater Dublin Area is Ireland’s largest urban area and is home to some 1.9 million people. With the population set to reach 2.35 million by 2040, RPS faced the complex challenge of modelling the demand, future proofing the supply and ensuring the correct infrastructure is in place to service the Greater Dublin Area supporting economic growth.
RPS, working with Dublin City Council, the Department of Environment, Community & Local Government and Irish Water, has delivered an integrated strategic plan for the provision of core water services infrastructure for the Dublin Region over the medium to long term. This has ensured that the Region has been able to deliver upon the required water needs at a time of limited resources. The ongoing review and updating of the Plan will allow the Region to remain the economic hub of the country.
