Residents in Carrick on Suir can resume using their water supply without the need to boil the water before use. Irish Water reports that following the completion of remedial measures and the receipt of satisfactory monitoring results, the boil water notice issued on 13 May is now lifted with immediate effect. This decision follows consultation undertaken with the Health Service Executive (HSE).
The notice was originally issued as a precaution due to elevated turbidity in the water supply which impacted the disinfection process. Irish Water operation and compliance experts worked with colleagues in Tipperary County Council to carry out the necessary works to enable the notice to be lifted as quickly as possible.
All consumers on the Carrick on Suir (Crotty’s Lake) Public Water Supply can now resume normal use of the water supply for drinking, food preparation and brushing teeth.
The Irish Water Customer Contact Centre (1800 278 278) is available to answer customer queries in relation to this water notice. Further information is available on www.water.ie.
