Government Intervention Needed To Resolve Clonmel’s Water Crisis According To Public Representatives

175

Urgent Government Intervention is Needed to Resolve Clonmel’s Water Crisis according to Deputy Mattie McGrath and Councillor Niall Dennehy.

The Public Representatives are demanding an urgent meeting with Housing Minister Darragh O’Brien and senior executives of Uisce Éireann. A range of issues have caused disruption to residential and commercial customers in recent years but there are also concerns about the long term source of water for the town.

The representatives argue that the quality of the public water supply has significantly regressed since the establishment of Uisce Éireann eleven years ago. Additionally, hard water supplied from Monroe has caused difficulties for residents on the northern side of the town, with household appliances having to be replaced regularly.

Both Public Representatives argue that if such a problem occurred in Dublin, the Government would have taken immediate action.
