Project to replace 600 metres of old and damaged water mains in Tullow Street, Carlow are on schedule for completion by the end of August.
Irish Water’s project to replace old cast iron water mains and lead service connections on Tullow Street, Carlow is continuing on schedule and is "due for completion by the end of August".
The initial phases of this project in the vicinity of Potato Market and College Street have now been completed and works are progressing along Tullow Street towards the junction with Barrack Street.
This project involves replacing approximately 600 metres of old and damaged cast iron water mains along Tullow Street with new water mains.
This will result in "better water quality and pressure as well as securing the water supply and minimising the likelihood of supply disruptions due to bursts or leaks", Irish Water said in a statement to Carlow Live.
"Irish Water would like to thank residents and businesses in this area for their patience as we work to complete this important project," the water utility added.
