Joint Oireachtas Committee on Communications, Climate Action and Environment

ESB Networks: Discussion (Resumed)

Mr. Paddy Hayes:

There certainly was a leak in 2009 between Dodder Road and Templeogue. That was a spill to water and it was notified to Dublin City Council. It was remediated. I am not sure exactly where that was or if it was going under the Dodder but it was in Dodder Road. As Mr. Mulvaney said, since 1993 we have recorded five spills to water from fluid-filled cables.
