Majority Of South Tipp Customers Should Have Water Supply Fully Restored

357

Uisce Eireann says most customers in South Tipperary should have a water supply as of today.

Areas at higher elevation in the Rosegreen and Cashel areas will be the last to have supply restored as reservoirs fill and pressure is restored to normal – water tankers will remain until supply returns – located at Tesco car park, Dominic Street, Castle Green Avenue, Dean Ryan Terrace and Oliver Plunkett Terrace Cashel and in Rosegreen Village.

Four Boil Water Notices remain in effect for the Ardfinnan, Galtee, Ballylooby-Burncourt and Thurles schemes.

The company says there is short term and long term work underway to help lift the notices and prevent the need for Boil Water Notices in the future.

Capital works on the Water Treatment Plants in Rossadrehid and Ardfinnan are underway but it may be 2025 before these works are completed.

Problems with the dosing of water with chemicals is the issue on the Ballylooby/Burncourt and Thurles Schemes.

The company says the disinfection process at all water treatment plants is being upgraded with two thirds of plants completed.

This automated process is intended to adjust when the quality of the raw water needs extra dosing to meet Drinking Water Standards.

The company is encouraging the public to report any outages and says all of it’s Call Centre staff are located in Ireland. Such staff can provide information but can also escalate issues reported by members of the public.

The Customer Support Centre can be contacted by calling 1 800 278 278 – the service operates 24hours every day
