Boil Water Notice lifted for Grangemore Public Water Supply
Customers can now resume normal use of the water supply
Irish Water and Roscommon County Council are pleased to confirm that, after consultations with the Health Service Executive, that the boil water notice imposed on the supply on July 27 2018 is now lifted with immediate effect.
This notice applies to all consumers on the Grangemore Public Water Supply and Ballinameen Camlin group water scheme and affected customers in the areas of; Croghan, Ballinameen, Ballymore, and the Plains in County Roscommon and Killaraght in County Sligo.
All reservoirs within the network have been cleaned
Customers can now resume normal use of the water supply for drinking, food preparation and brushing teeth.
A decision to impose a boil water notice on the Grangemore PWS was made on July 27 2018 due to coliform bacteria detections and low chlorine residuals at locations throughout the network.
Irish Water and Roscommon County Council can now confirm that plant improvements to the disinfection system are now complete and that the chlorine residuals have improved throughout the network. In addition all reservoirs within the network have been cleaned and extensive flushing of the network.
Commenting, Anthony Skeffington, Regional Asset Operations Manager from Irish Water said: 'Public health is our number one priority and we aim to provide compliant and robust water treatment for all people on the Grangemore supply. We acknowledge the impact this BWN has had on the local community and wish to thank all of those impacted for their cooperation and patience.’
Further information for customers on the boil water notice is available by calling Irish Water’s 24-hour customer care helpline on 1850 278 278.
