Crews working to repair a burst watermain in Navan
Saturday 9 November - The repair work is complete and service is fully operational.
Friday 8 November - Irish Water is working in partnership with Meath County Council to repair a burst watermain in Navan. The burst occurred on the water main that carries water to from Liscarton water treatment plant to Proudstown Reservoir.
Water supply is currently dependent on storage in the reservoir and so Irish Water is encouraging customers in the following areas to conserve water while the repair is underway; parts of Navan Town; Trim Road; Ardbraccan; Dunderry; Bohermeen; Ongenstown; Boyerstown; Blackcastle; Silverlawn; Boyne Road; Windtown Road; Gibbstown; Oristown; Rossmeen; Mullaghboy and Clogherboy.
We are urging customers to conserve water by; not running taps needlessly, taking showers instead of baths and to postpone using dishwashers and washing machines where possible.
Crews will be working into the night to repair the burst as quickly and as safely as possible to safeguard the water supply for homes and businesses in Navan and surrounding areas. Traffic management will be in place at the burst location for the duration of these works.
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.
The latest updates on the repair will be posted to our supply and service section. The Irish Water customer care helpline is open 24/7 and customers can call us on 1850 278 278. Customers can also contact us on Twitter @IWCare with any queries.
