Works to replace 1.9 kilometres of ageing water mains and service connections in Ballindine will get underway on Tuesday.
These works will reduce the instances of bursts and water outages experienced in the area in the past and will eliminate leaks.
The works will begin on Tuesday and are expected to be completed by the end of June.
The project will be delivered by Mayo County Council on behalf of Irish Water and will take place on the Scardaune Road, west of Ballindine.
The works may involve some short term water shut offs and traffic management plans but local residents and businesses will be notified of these in advance.
Local Fine Gael Cllr Tom Connolly told Midwest News the works are welcome news
