  • Public consultation on a plan to transform the water supply for more than half the State’s population, including piping water from the Shannon to the east coast, begins today.
  • The aim of the plan is to support growth and economic development across the region and reduce leakage from an existing level of 38 per cent, to 22 per cent.
  • The Water Supply Project Eastern and Midlands Region, more commonly known as the Shannon pipeline, would take water from the lower river Shannon at the Parteen Basin in Co Tipperary.
