414

Uisce Éireann reports that it’s repair crews have successfully completed repairs following a fault at the water treatment plant supplying customers in Cashel town and surrounding areas. The company says water supply has returned to the majority of customers now. Due to low reservoir levels and the size of the network, it may take until later this evening before normal water pressure is fully returned to all customers, especially for those on higher ground or at the end of the network.

Tankers of water will remain in place at St. Patrick’s Hospital and Cashel Rugby Club until normal water supply has returned to all customers. Customers are reminded to use their own clean containers when taking water from the tankers.  Vulnerable customers and business operators who have registered with Uisce Éireann receive direct communications for planned and unplanned outages lasting more than four hours.

The company is also giving notice of a further planned outage for tomorrow Tuesday April 23rd. A water treatment plant upgrade may cause supply disruptions to Ardane, Grallagh, Suirville, Templenoe, Tankardstown, New Inn, Ballygerard, Rockwell, Quarryford Cross, Rosegreen, Racecourse cross, Maiden Hill, Garranlea, Knockgraffon, Marlhill, Lalor’s Lot, Hill’s Lot and surrounding areas. The works are planned from 8am until 2pm tomorrow and Uisce Eireann says it will be 2 to 3 hours after the completion of the works before supply is fully restored.Uisce Éireann provides information about water service and supply issues on www.water.ie.
