Welcome to Greater Dublin Drainage
Greater Dublin Drainage (GDD) is a project to develop a new regional wastewater treatment facility for greater Dublin.
A sites assessment and selection process has been completed and has identified the preferred solution as being:
- an underground orbital sewer from Blanchardstown to Clonshagh (Clonshaugh) and two new pumping stations;
- a new wastewater treatment facility at Clonshagh (Clonshaugh);
- an outfall pipe from the wastewater treatment facility discharging to the Irish Sea.
Irish Water is now progressing the environmental studies required to prepare a planning application for the GDD project.
It is anticipated that an application for planning consent will be made to the independent planning authority, An Bord Pleanála, in 2018.
