Irish Water has confirmed that three Boil Water Notices remain in place for county Tipperary.

Irish Water has confirmed that conditions have not yet improved sufficiently to begin sampling the quality of the treated water.

The HSE typically requires 3 consecutive days of water supply to the required standard for drinking water before the boil notices can be lifted – meaning it is likely to be at least 4 days before the Boil Notices will be lifted at the earliest.

All of the notices were issued due to elevated levels of turbidity in the water – this is when there is a higher than acceptable level of particulate matter in the water.

The affected schemes are the Horse and Jockey Public Water Supply, since 3 September, impacting approximately 650 customers.

The Galtee Public Water Supply, since September 5th impacting over 15,000 people and the Glenary Supply in Clonmel which impacts over 10,500 customers under a Boil water notice since September 13th.

Irish water is working to lift the notices but as of today no dates are available as to when the issues will be resolved.
