Swords Wastewater Treatment Plant Upgrade - Update 31st August 2015

The expansion of the Swords wastewater treatment plant commenced in April 2013 and is currently programmed to be complete in mid 2016. The expansion works are being undertaken by Irish Water in association with Fingal County Council. The Contractor carrying out the work is Aecom SIAC.

This expansion will increase the capacity of the plant from 60,000 to 90,000 population equivalent and will cater for the growing population and future development of Swords and its immediate environs.

The remaining works currently to be completed include, installation of mechanical equipment into the various buildings constructed, followed by  a period of commissioning, testing and proving of the new works. In tandem with this, all roads, walls and landscaping affected will be reinstated.
