Nenagh Water System to be Upgraded as Part of Gas Project

Nenagh's water supply is set for a major upgrade which will be completed alongside the gas project for Nenagh.
Ervia, which is the company that now oversees gas and water supply, are combining both the gas and water projects as part of an estimated ten million euro investment.
Bord Gáis Éireann, now called Ervia, plans to provide a gas connection to Arrabawn Co-Operative and Nenagh town, by the middle of 2015, and it will then roll out the gas distribution network to businesses and residents, allowing them to avail the clean and efficient energy source for the first time.
At the same time, through Ervia’s other subsidiary - Irish Water, Ervia will also carry out a water rehabilitation project in Nenagh to improve water and waste water systems in the town as a combined project with the gas distribution works.
This is the first time that Ervia; as a multi-utility company; will take a combined approach to deliver water and gas infrastructure in Ireland. Integrating both projects under the Ervia umbrella will increase efficiencies and deliver direct cost savings to customers, while minimising disruption to businesses and the local community.
The project will highlight the benefits of Ervia’s multi-utility model and the skills and expertise of both businesses and in tandem will deliver modern utility services and support the development of the local economy in North Tipperary in the future.
This will be first combined utility project of gas and water in the country. When you are already digging up roadways to provide gas - it makes sense to upgrade the water infrastructure as well. This will deliver major savings and provide better water infrastructure for the people of Nenagh. Along with the gas, this is a key economic investment into Nenagh.
