From November 10th 2020, Irish Water working in partnership with Tipperary County Council began introducing a new water supply for over 15,000 people in Thurles, Borrisleigh, Ballycahill and Holycross.
The Thurles Regional Water Supply Scheme will provide a safe and secure water supply to the area and will promote sustainable development in the region.
Up to now, drinking water for this area has been supplied from eight separate sources. These sources are vulnerable and are limited in capacity.
The new water treatment plant is located on a site in Killeenyarda, near Holycross with a new intake and pumping station on the River Clodiagh at Rathkennan.
