Do Not Use notice lifted in Kilkerrin Industrial Estate

Following consultation with the Health Service Executive (HSE), Irish Water working in partnership with Galway City Council has lifted the Do Not Use notice which affected 40 businesses in the Kilkerrin Park section of Liosbaun Industrial Estate since Monday 24 November. Irish Water’s drinking water compliance and operational experts worked with colleagues in the Galway City Council to resolve the issue over the past few days.

The notice was issued as a precaution following the accidental break of a sewer and watermain located in close proximity to each other which may have resulted in contamination of the drinking water supply. Forty commercial properties were affected.  No other part of the estate or any other area of Galway City was impacted.
