Customers advised in St Lelia Street in Limerick of possible water outages on Wednesday 3 June due to essential repairs
Part of national Leakage Reduction Programme
Leak detection and repair works may cause supply disruption to Saint Lelia Street and surrounding areas in Limerick City from 6am to 9am on Wednesday 3rd June 2020.
During these essential planned works homes and businesses in the affected areas may be impacted by reduced water pressure and water outages. Following these improvement works water supply may take 2-3 hours to return as water refills the network. This temporary disruption allows us to improve the overall security of water supply by repairing leaks.
Irish Water is working proactively with our delivery partners and as part of a multi-agency working group to ensure that our construction works are carried out in a controlled and safe manner, in keeping with Government and HSE guidelines to protect workers, their families and the broader community.
We understand this type of work can be inconvenient and will ensure our work crews make every effort to minimise any disruption these works may cause.
Customers can call the Irish Water customer helpline on 1850 278 278 for any questions in relation to the works.
These works are being carried out as part of Irish Water’s national Leakage Reduction Programme which will see €500 million invested up to the end of 2021 to reduce the level of leakage across the country by fixing and replacing ageing water mains. This will ensure a safe, reliable water supply which is vital for our health, our environment and our growing population and economy.
Our customer care helpline is open 24/7 on 1850 278 278 and customers can also contact us on Twitter @IWCare with any queries. For updates please see the water Supply and Services section.
