Boil Before Use Notice On Glengar Public Water Supply Lifted


The Boil before Use notice on the Glengar Public water supply has been lifted by Uisce Eireann in conjunction with the HSE. The notice was first issued on March 3rd after cryptosporidium was detected in the water supply. The notice was put in place to protect the health of approximately 470 customers supplied by Glengar Public Water Supply Scheme in Glengar, Leugh, Knockanavar, Moher East, Moher West, Shanacloon, Gortaderry, Ballyhane East, Ballyhane West, Lissowen and surrounding areas.

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

Colin Cunningham of Uisce Éireann says “Uisce Éireann and Tipperary County Council wish to thank everyone for their patience, co-operation and assistance during this boil water notice and greatly regret any inconvenience caused to homes and businesses”.

Uisce Éireann 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 Uisce Éireann Customer Contact Centre (1800 278 278) is available to answer customer queries in relation to this water notice.
