Ferrybank Pumping Station Enabling Works
Waterford City and County Council and Irish Water have commenced construction on a new pump station in Ferrybank to improve the overall wastewater infrastructure. David Walsh Civil Engineering Ltd. has been appointed as the main contractor on the project. The project represents a further step in the continued delivery of improvements to the wastewater network.
The project will see the upgraded Pumping Station replace the existing Pump Station relocated to the former Dunlop site, which now forms an integral part of the North Quays Strategic Development Zone (SDZ).
The new pump station will have expanded storage to significantly reduce the frequency of sewage overflows, improve wastewater capacity in the Ferrybank catchment area, and meet all environmental standards for discharge of sewage overflows.
The implementation of this much improved wastewater infrastructure will improve flood protection, reduce the sites carbon footprint, and facilitate future development as the catchment area grows. The local community will see the benefits for years to come in terms of health, integrity of the environment and improved water quality for all.
