Boil Water Notice lifted for Cahersiveen Public Water Supply
Following advice from the Health Service Executive, Irish Water and Kerry County Council are pleased to confirm that the Boil Water Notice for the area supplied by the Cahersiveen Public Water Supply affecting approximately 1,370 people has now been lifted following drinking water quality test results.
The Boil Water Notice had been put in place as a precautionary measure following the detection of cryptosporidium in the Cahersiveen Public Water Supply.
Irish Water drinking water compliance and operational experts worked with colleagues in Kerry County Council to carry out remedial works on the supply and resolve the situation as quickly as possible.
Margaret Attridge, Irish Water said “Following a number of satisfactory water samples and consultation with the HSE, the Boil Water Notice is lifted with immediate effect. Irish Water acknowledges and understands the impact of this notice on the people affected and we sincerely regret the inconvenience.”
