City sewers to get major €2 million upgrade in massive year-long project

Thu, May 24, 2018

Major upgrade works are to take place on the William Street, Shop Street, High Street, Cross Street, Augustine Street, and Flood Street sewers, to tackle storm water overflows, odour issues, and sewer flooding. Work will start on the massive project later this summer.

It was announced this week that Irish Water, in partnership with the Galway City Council, is investing €2 million to upgrade Galway city’s sewers. The work will be undertaken by GMC Contractors.

The works involve the relining of the existing masonry sewer with a new pre-cast plastic sleeve. Before this can take place, sewer cleaning and site investigation works are required. The relining works will be carried out in phases to mitigate against potential impacts to businesses and residents. The relining will use non-dig technology to minimise the impact of the works. Some local excavations will be required to provide proper access to the sewers to allow the relining to take place.
