People living in the Monread area will be the first to have water meters installed in their homes.

The nationwide project to install devices to measure - and bill for - water consumption is well underway and will start in Monread at the end of this month.

Some residents have already been contacted.

Irish Water contractors will begin working in Monread on October 29 and it’s understood that most homes in Naas town will have had meters installed by mid-January 2014.

Householders are given 14 days notice before work gets underway and Irish Water also makes contact with the local authority identifying when specific areas of the town will be visited.

Irish Water, as opposed to Kildare County Council or Naas Town Council, is fully responsible for the installation and for any issues or complaints which may arise.

It’s understood that the contractors will take pictures of every installation site before and after the meter is connected as a means of guaranteeing that the work is properly completed.

Irish Water is also responsible for any possible consequences arising from accidents.
