Essential maintenance works to safeguard the water supply for customers supplied by Roundstown Reservoir
12 May 2023
Essential maintenance works taking place from Monday, 15 May to Wednesday, 17 May
Uisce Éireann is working in partnership with Galway County Council to carry out essential maintenance works to safeguard the water supply for homes and businesses supplied by Roundstown Reservoir.
Uisce Éireann and Galway County Council wish to advise customers supplied by the Roundstone and Errisbeg Group Water Scheme, that reservoir maintenance works may cause disruption to supply for homes and businesses from 11pm on Monday 15 May to 7am on Wednesday 17 May 2023.
An alternative water supply will be available at carpark opposite Vaughan's Bar & Restaurant. Customers are reminded to use their own containers when taking water from the tanker and, as a precaution, boil the water before drinking. Vulnerable customers who have registered with Uisce Éireann will receive direct communication on this planned maintenance work.
Speaking about the maintenance works, Operations Lead with Uisce Éireann, Eoin Hughes said: "These scheduled maintenance works are necessary to continue to provide a safe and reliable supply to Roundstone and its environs. Uisce Éireann understands the inconvenience when planned works like this occurs and thanks customers for their patience while we complete these essential works.”
