Lead Pipe Replacement Grant and Well Grant

You can find out more about the Lead Pipe Replacement Grant and Well Grant below.

If your home has lead pipes and plumbing that need to be replaced, or you have a recent water quality test result that shows above normal levels of lead in your water supply, you may qualify for a Lead Pipe Replacement Grant.  

The level of grant you may qualify for is based on your gross household income. 

To see if your household qualifies please read the Department of the Environment Lead Grant Scheme Information Leaflet 2017 and the  Lead Grant Scheme Supply Pipes Guidance Notes 2017.

Then, if you meet the criteria please print out and fill in the Lead Grant Scheme Application Form  or  Lead Grant Scheme Application Form Irish  , and return it to the Water Services Department, Fingal County Council, Civic Offices, Blanchardstown, Dublin 15, D15 W638.

If you have any questions about your application please contact us, contact details are at the end of this page.  

If your home has a private well supply that is in need of works, you may qualify to apply for a well grant.

The approved costs are calculated by Fingal and are an estimate of the reasonable cost of the works.

The level of grant is determined by the type of improvement work being undertaken and shall not exceed the following amounts:

  1. 85% of the approved costs for rehabilitation works, subject to a maximum of €3,000;


85% of the approved costs for the provision of a new well, subject to a maximum of €5,000 (where the housing authority agrees that this is the most appropriate solution);

  1. 100% of the approved costs for works that in the opinion of the housing authority, are necessary to treat the water to meet the water quality standards specified in the Regulations, subject to a maximum grant of €1,000.  Examples of such treatments are filtration or Ultra Violet treatment.

The grant is not available for improvement works that cost less than

€750, in total.
