Irish water officially began construction on a €9.7 million wastewater pipe network for Rush, Co. Dublin on Friday, November 11.

The network, which is expected to be take two years to complete, is designed to stop the discharge of raw sewage into the sea, improving the bathing water at South Rush Beach.

The network will direct existing outfall and overflow water to an wastewater treatment plant in Portrane, County Dublin, according to Irish Water. Three new pumping stations will also be constructed in the area as part of the plan.

Deputy Leader of Fine Gael, Senator James Reilly, who turned the sod at the official start of works at Rush South Beach, said the construction was “a hugely important milestone in the history of the town. The people of Rush have waited for many years for this day.”

This project forms part of Irish Water’s €532 million investment plan to improve the country’s water and wastewater infrastructure in 2016.
