Work is ongoing to repair a burst watermain in Navan
Burst occurred on the water main that supplies water to Navan town
Irish Water is working in partnership with Meath County Council to repair a burst watermain in Navan. The burst occurred on the water main supplying water to Navan, at Troytown Heights on Proudstown Road R162.
Homes and businesses in the following areas may be impacted by disruption to their supply while the repairs are ongoing; Navan Town; Trim Road; Ardbraccan; Dunderry; Bohermeen; Ongenstown; Boyerstown; Blackcastle; Silverlawn; Boyne Road; Windtown Road; Gibbstown; Oristown; Rossmeen; Mullaghboy and Clogherboy. Water supply is being maintained to Navan town centre and the hospital from Carne Hill reservoir.
Crews working on site since early this morning
Crews have been on site since early this morning and progress has been made but there are complexities with this repair given the depth of the pipe that has burst. A stop/go traffic management system is in place for the duration of these works. The estimated completion time for the repair is expected to be 7pm though it may take a number of hours for the water supply to return in full to impacted properties.
Irish Water understands the inconvenience when a burst occurs and thanks customers for their patience while we work to repair the burst and restore normal supply to impacted customers. Irish Water and Meath County Council regret any inconvenience caused.
