Kerry CRWTP Opening | Lough Guitane | Irish Water


We marked the official opening of the Kerry Regional Water Treatment Plant on the 5th of November.

The project included the construction of a new Water Treatment Plant at Lough Guitane and associated upgrade works on existing infrastructure. The new plant is located adjacent to Lough Guitane and the Finnow River, part of Killarney National Park. Construction commenced on site in April 2016 and took approximately two years to complete.

The new plant, which provides 51 million litres of water a day, has a hydroelectric power turbine for the intake of water, state-of-the-art water filtration, disinfection, chlorination and fluoridation capability. It also includes capacity to store 15 million litres of treated water (the equivalent of six Olympic sized swimming pools).
