Do Not Drink notice in Dualla lifted following remedial works
Customers can now resume normal use of water
Irish Water is pleased to confirm that the Do Not Drink notice that was in place for the Dualla public water supply has now been lifted. Customers in the area can now resume normal use of their water for drinking, food preparation and brushing teeth.
Follows consultation with the HSE
The lifting of the notice this afternoon follows consultation with the HSE and satisfactory monitoring results to confirm the new water supply is safe to drink.
“We are very pleased that this notice has now been lifted following remedial work by staff from Irish Water and Tipperary County Council, with support from the HSE,” said Duane O’Brien of Irish Water. “We would like to thank the local community for their patience and support while this work was carried out, and acknowledge the inconvenience they experienced as a result of this issue.”
Borehole is now back to full production
The Do Not Drink Notice was put in place on Wednesday, April 3rd as a precautionary measure following an increase in turbidity – or cloudiness - in the raw water source for the Dualla Public Water Supply. The borehole which supplies the water is now back to full production following the completion of works on site.
We will meet with the Local Authority/HSE Water Liaison Group and will review ongoing process control, monitoring and testing of the drinking water supply. For more information contact our Customer Contact Centre (1850 278 278) to answer customer queries in relation to this water notice.
