Any member of the Meath Hill Water Scheme who registered their details with Irish Water earlier this year are now entitled to the €100 Water Conservation Grant. The Department of Social Protection is now writing to people about it. Just remember you have to apply for it, it does not come automatically. You can apply online at www.watergrant.ie or by ringing 0761 087 890 or 1890 100 043 between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday. Closing date is 8th of October.
The Meath Hill Group Water Scheme has received government funding to replace the rising main, which is the pipe that carries the water from the wells to the reservoir. The work is expected to start in the next fortnight, and will go on till the end of October. It will cause minor traffic disruption locally on a rolling basis. The work is being carried out by a local contractor. We would ask the people for their cooperation during the work.
The water supply will be turned off on the 15th of August, from 8 a.m. until late afternoon, as the reservoir is being cleaned that day.
Here you will find information on our water scheme, its history, contact details, important notices and ongoing works on the scheme.
