Uisce Éireann and Tipperary County Council have issued a new Boil Water Notice with immediate effect for the Burncourt Regional and Burncourt Ballylooby Public Water Supplies. This is due to the deterioration of raw water quality which has impacted the treatment processes at the water treatment plant. The previous notice issued on July 10th was only lifted on July 21st.
The notice impacts customers in Burncourt, Ballyporeen, Clogheen, Ballylooby, Mitchelstown Road in Cahir, and surrounding areas. The notice also impacts customers on the Kiltankin and Clonmore South Group Water Schemes. Customers can check if their property is included by visiting the Water Quality section of www.water.ie and entering the property’s Eircode or by calling the Uisce Éireann customer care helpline, open 24/7, on 1800 278 278.
All consumers affected by this notice must boil their water before drinking.
As some customers may be without water due or have reduced pressure as there was a loss of production last night the company is to make water tankers available this afternoon at the following locations – at the BMW Garage on the Mitchelstown road in Cahir; Ballyporeen Shop Carpark, Clogheen Church, Skeheenarinky National School, Burncourt Church and Ballylooby Church.
Customers are reminded to use their own containers when taking water from the tanker and to boil water before consumption as a precautionary measure as per HSE advice.
