Some may experience supply disruptions as repairs progress

Irish Water, working in partnership with Kildare County Council, wishes to advise customers in an area of Celbridge that due to a burst watermain they may experience supply disruptions today.

Affected areas

The areas affected are Hazelhatch Road, Hazelhatch Park, Primrose Gate, Hazelwood Park, Simmonstown Park, Primrose Hill, Primrose Village, The Grove, Simmonstown Manor, Callender's Mill, Temple Manor, Chelmsford, Chelmsford Manor and surrounding areas.

Repairs

A repair crew is carrying out emergency repairs as quickly and safely as possible and traffic management will be in place while these essential works are underway.

Repairs are expected to be completed by 5pm today but we recommend that customers allow two to three hours for normal supply to report. There may be some customers who are impacted for longer due to a second burst in the area. Repair crews will make every effort possible to divert supply to affected properties but there may be some who do not receive a full water supply until tomorrow.

Irish Water understands the inconvenience to customers when their water supply is affected and we would like to thank the public for their patience and cooperation while this unplanned outage is attended to as quickly as possible.
