Dublin Region Water Services Strategic Planning and Capital Investment – 1995 – 2018

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).
