Boil Water Notice lifted for Kilconnell Public Water Supply
Following advice from the Health Service Executive, Irish Water and Galway County Council are pleased to confirm that the Boil Water Notice for the area supplied by the Kilconnell Public Water Supply affecting approximately 246 people has now been lifted.
The Boil Water Notice was put in place on 18 June 2018 following high levels of Turbidity in the Kilconnell Public Water Supply.
Water mains in Kilconnell have been flushed and water is safe to drink
Irish Water would like to thank the Cappataggle Community Group Water Scheme who facilitated an interconnecting pipeline to the Kilconnell water network. The water mains in Kilconnell have been flushed, and results from samples highlight that the water is safe to drink, and that the boil water notice can be lifted with immediate effect.
Tim O Connor, Irish Water Operations Lead Engineer for Galway, said “I’d like to acknowledge the impact and disruption that the Boil Water Notice has had on the residents of Kilconnell, and to thank the local community for their cooperation and patience whilst we resolved this issue. I would also like to thank the community of Cappatagle for facilitating a connection to their water supply which has led to the boil water notice being lifted. Irish Water’s priority is the provision of safe clean drinking water and safeguarding that water supply for the future is a vital focus.”
