Alternative Water Supplies available in Carrigaline
Work continues to repair burst pipe
Irish Water and Cork County Council are carrying out repairs to a burst water main which is causing some supply disruptions to parts of Carrigaline and surrounding areas in Co. Cork. These works have an estimated completion time of 6pm this evening. We recommend that customers allow 2-3 hours after the estimated restoration time for their supply to return fully. In the meantime a water tanker is available in Owenabue Heights until 6pm today.
Recommended to boil tanker water before use
We 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, we 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.
We apologise for any inconvenience as a result of this issue which we are working as a matter of priority to resolve. For more updates please see the Supply and Service Updates section of our website or contact our customer call centre at 1850 278 278.
