Irish Water is responsible for providing water and wastewater services throughout Ireland. A Pre-connection enquiry should be submitted to Irish Water as a priority upon project kick-off as Confirmation of Feasibility to connect to Irish Water infrastructure and Design Vetting will be required as part of the planning application. The initial approval process from Irish Water can take up to 10 weeks from the submission of the Pre-Connection Enquiry.
We have tailored our workflow to align with Irish Water requirements mitigate against requests for further information when applying for standard or diversion connection applications once planning has been granted.
Since April 1st 2019, Irish Water has implemented their Connection Charging Policy providing a standard set of charges based on connection type, for connections to Irish Water’s water and wastewater networks. Standard connection charges will apply to the majority of customers and Irish Water will provide a full connection service to a customer’s boundary, where all components of the connection works are performed by Irish Water.
Further detail on costs associated with connection to Irish Water Infrastructure can be found at https://www.water.ie/connections/information/connection-charges/
