The main source of water supply for the Dublin Region is Poulaphuca Lake on the Upper Liffey. Water is abstracted from Poulaphuca (Co Wicklow) and treated in Ballymore Eustace Water Treatment Plant (Co Kildare). Treated water is then transmitted from Ballymore Eustace to Dublin (approximately 40km).
