Water supply is compliant and normal usage can resume

Following advice from the Health Service Executive, Irish Water and Wexford County Council can confirm that the Boil Water Notice on the Bree Water Supply Scheme has been lifted with immediate effect. The boil water notice was put in place on 12 July due to detection of low levels of E.coli and Coliforms as part of routine water quality sampling.

Irish Water and Wexford County Council worked continuously to ensure that a safe and compliant supply of water was returned to the 365 consumers that are served by the supply as quickly as possible. Following remedial works on the supply and the recording of satisfactory monitoring results in consultation with the HSE the boil water notice has now been lifted as the water supply is again compliant with drinking water regulations.

Customers can now resume normal use of the water supply for drinking, food preparation and brushing teeth. The Irish Water Customer Care Team is available to answer your queries on 1890 278 278. Further information and additional advice is also available on our Service & Supply section.

Irish Water and Wexford County Council acknowledge the patience, cooperation and assistance of the general public during the period of the boil water notice. We greatly regret any inconvenience caused to householders, the farming and business communities.
