Irish Water to spend €500m on supplying Dublin with River Shannon water

Householders in Dublin will start getting water from the River Shannon when they turn on their taps by 2020.

According to the Irish Independent, the project will be the biggest part of the Irish Water infrastructure plan to be announced this week.

The need for a new long-term additional water source for the Dublin region was identified back in 1996.

The project is expected to cost more than €500m.
