Crews working to restore water supply to customers affected by burst watermain in Kanturk

06 January 2023

Uisce Éireann and Cork County Council are working to restore water supply to approximately 500 properties in Kanturk Town due to a burst watermain on Percival Street. 

Dedicated crews have been working on repairs since this morning and continue to make every effort to minimise disruption to and restore water supply to customers as quickly as possible.

Repairs are expected to be completed by 7pm today, however, it typically takes two to three hours following repairs for the network to refill and for normal water supply to restore to all customers. 

To ensure the safety of road users and the crews carrying out the repairs, traffic management will be in place and will be clearly signposted.

Operations Lead for Uisce Éireann, Pat Britton said “Uisce Éireann understands the inconvenience when an unplanned outage occurs and we would like to thank customers for their patience while we work to repair the burst and restore normal supply to impacted customers as quickly as possible.”
