Increased Private Drinking Water Well Grant

Domestic drinking water tap

Mr. Eoghan Murphy, T.D. Minister for the Department of Housing, Planning & Local Government has announced a new investment programme for water services in rural areas. This includes an increase to the grant available to homeowners for refurbishment works or installation of a domestic well in rural areas. The maximum grant available for renovation has been increased to €3,000 and where a new well is required the maximum amount is €5,000. Renovation works include installation of disinfection systems like UV treatment and filters to make sure your water is safe to drink.

The changes to the grant schemes for private wells are planned to come into effect by the end of April 2019. To apply for the Well Grant in your area please contact your local authority.
