Irish Water Issues Updates On Three Boil Water Notices


Irish Water Update on the three Boil Water Notices in place in County Tipperary as of today September 20th
Galtee Scheme – approximately 15,600 customers

Irish Water is currently undertaking sampling in consultation with the HSE.

However, the notice will only be lifted when it is safe to do so.

Three consecutive days of satisfactory results are required.

Glenary Scheme – Clonmel 10,500 customers
Irish Water is currently undertaking works at the plant with the aim of lifting the notice as soon as it is safe to do so.

The aim is to complete the works next week and commence sampling in the network and at the plant.

When Irish Water is in receipt of the satisfactory sampling results, they will then consult with the HSE and seek to lift the Boil Water Notice

Horse & Jockey Scheme – 650 customers
Irish Water continues to monitor the supply and consult with the HSE.

Irish Water is assessing options for this scheme.

However, at present there is no estimated timeline for lifting the Boil Water Notice.

Irish Water will provide a further update on this scheme as soon as more information is available.

Irish Water and Tipperary County Council say they are working to lift the Boil Water Notices for all three schemes as quickly and safely as possible.

However until such time as the BWNs are lifted, customers are reminded to continue to boil the water before use.
