Crews working to restore water supply to customers supplied by the Gorey Rural Water Supply Scheme

Information below is relevant until further updates are provided here or on our Supply and Service Updates section.

Uisce Éireann and Wexford County Council are working to maintain water supply to customers following an overnight operational issue at Ballyminaun Water Treatment Plant. Whilst every effort is being made to maintain supply to as many customers as possible, some customers in Gorey Town, Clough, Ballymoney, Courtown, Riverchapel, Pollshone, Ballycanew, Killenagh, Monamolin, Kilmuckridge and surrounding areas will be experiencing low pressure and/or water outages.

Crews are working as quickly, and efficiently as possible and normal water supply is expected to be restored by 3pm today. It typically takes five to six hours for the water network to refill following operational works.  

Uisce Éireann's, Ronan Walsh 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 operational fault at Ballyminaun Water Treatment Plant  and restore normal supply to impacted customers as quickly as possible.

Vulnerable customers who have registered with Uisce Éireann receive direct communications from us for planned and unplanned outages lasting more than four hours.

Updates are available on our Supply and Service Updates section, on Twitter @IWCare and via our customer care helpline, open 24/7 on 1800 278 278.
