Over 15,000 residents on the Galtee Regional Water Supply will be able use water as normal as the Boil Notice has ceased with immediate effect.

Irish Water and Tipperary County Council have completed remedial measures and satisfactory testing results have been recorded for three consecutive days. The boil water notice, issued on Monday September 5th.

The areas impacted were Emly, Lattin, Ballinard, Cullen, Ballywire, Kilross, Limerick Junction, Monard, Lisvarnane, Rosadrehid, Bansha, Tankerstown, Kilfeacle, Golden, Cashel, Rosegreen, New Inn and surrounding areas.

The notice was originally issued as a precaution due to elevated turbidity(particulate matter) in the water supply which impacted the disinfection process.

All consumers on the Galtee Regional Public Water Supply Scheme can now resume normal use of the water supply for drinking, food preparation and brushing teeth.

Two other Boil before Use notices remain in effect in county Tipperary.

These involve over 11,000 customers on the Glenary Public Supply in Clonmel and on the Horse and Jockey scheme.

It is likely to be next week before the Glenary notice is lifted as works are not yet completed and the Horse and Jockey scheme may take longer to resolve.

Irish Water and the Local Authority and the Health Service Executive Water Liaison Group will continue to meet and will review ongoing process control, monitoring and testing of the drinking water supply.

The Irish Water Customer Contact Centre (1800 278 278) is available to answer customer queries in relation to the water notices. 

Irish Water and Tipperary County Council acknowledge the patience, cooperation and assistance of the general public during the period of the boil water notice and greatly regret any inconvenience caused to householders and the business community.
