Two Boil Water Notices Remain In Place In Co. Tipp


Two boil water notices remain in place in county Tipperary. The Glenary Public Water Supply in Clonmel supplies almost 11,000 people and was put on a Boil Water Notice on September 13th.

As of this morning, Irish water says there are still “operational issues” at the treatment plant and unspecified “works to improve the reliability, as well as developing longer-term plans for the water supply in the Clonmel and surrounding area” are underway.

The boil before use notices remain in place and as sampling has not yet  begun is likely to remain in place for at least another week.

Tipp Mid-West Radio has sought details of the actions at both locations to lift the notices.

Irish Water gave no update in respect of the Horse and Jockey Supply, affecting 650 people and on a Boil before use Notice since September 8th.

Irish Water advises that the water remains suitable for washing hands and boiling the water is not required for this purpose.  Vulnerable customers are reminded that the water is safe to consume once boiled.

The Irish Water customer care line is open 24/7 on 1800 278 278.
