9.4 Foul Drainage & Water Supply
9.4.1 FOUL DRAINAGE
Dublin Airport is situated within the catchment of the North Fringe Sewer with effluent treated at Ringsend Waste Water Treatment Plant. Irish Water are currently preparing the Sutton Pump Station Drainage Area Plan (DAP). The Sutton Pump Station DAP boundary includes the catchment of the North Fringe Sewer and the surrounding area. This study will assess current constraints and capacity for future growth within the catchment.
9.4.2 WATER SUPPLY
Dublin Airport and its environs is located within the Ballycoolin Reservoir Supply area. The area is generally well served with trunk mains and has capacity to cater for additional future growth in the area including Dublin Airport. The current airport demand is met from an internal reservoir and boosting system which is under the control of daa. A 25 year plan has been created by Irish Water for the Greater Dublin Region, key apart of this plan is the proposed Water Supply Scheme to serve the region. This will ensure the long term capacity of the water supply network to cater for sustainable development within the LAP lands.
WATER SUPPLY OBJECTIVES
Liaise with Irish Water to ensure that an adequate supply of drinking water is available for the sustainable development of the Airport.
Liaise with and work in conjunction with Irish Water during the lifetime of the plan for the provision, extension and upgrading of waste water collection and treatment systems necessary to facilitate the sustainable development of the Airport.
Collaborate with Irish Water to ensure the delivery of their Capital Investment Plan or any other relevant investment works programme to ensure both foul and water capacity constraints are not a deterrent to sustainable development.
