Residents in Cashel town and surrounding area are experiencing water outages due to a Water Treatment Plant Interruption.

Uisce Eireann says works are scheduled to take place until 1pm tomorrow (22 April).

Water tankers are now available at Cashel Rugby Club and St Patrick’s Hospital.

Irish Water says they make every effort to ensure that the alternative drinking water supply provided, including the tanker / bowser, and dispensing tap, are adequately disinfected.

However as it is not practical to provide sterilised containers for the public to transport drinking water from the tanker to their homes, Irish Water cannot guarantee that any containers used by the public do not negatively impact or contaminate the drinking water.

Therefore, as a precautionary measure, it is recommended that any members of the public who obtain water from a tanker or bowser boil the water before use.

The company recommends that residents allow 2-3 hours after the estimated restoration time for their supply to fully return.
