A discharge from the Ringsend wastewater treatment plant into Dublin Bay earlier this year

Irish Water has announced in a press release:

Irish Water is carrying out essential maintenance works at the Ringsend Wastewater Treatment Plant in the coming days in order to reduce the risk of odours from the plant.

These works are essential maintenance works on one of the odour control units at the Ringsend Wastewater Treatment Plant, and involve replacing carbon odour control media to ensure any odours generated in the primary clarifiers are effectively treated.

There may be intermittent odours while these works are carried out.

The works will start immediately and will take approximately five days. Irish Water would like to apologise for any odours that arise while the work is being carried out.
