Essential repair works in Bracetown Business Park, Dunboyne

23 July 2021

Works are scheduled to take place on Friday, 23 July between 9am and 4.30pm

Irish Water is working in partnership with Meath County Council to safeguard the water supply for business customers in Dunboyne. The essential repair works that were scheduled to take place today at the pumping station supplying business customers in Bracetown Business Park, The Hub Logistics Park and MSD Biologics in Dunboyne, has been rescheduled to Wednesday, 28 July between 9am and 4.30pm. These works are being delivered in adherence with current HSE and government COVID-19 advice. During these works, customers may experience disruptions to their water supply including outages and/or lower than normal water pressure.

Irish Water is encouraging customers to conserve water while these essential repairs are underway. There are ways to conserve water that will not impact on hygiene or handwashing. Simple water conservation efforts can have a big impact on reducing demand on the supply such as not running taps needlessly, taking showers instead of baths and to postpone using dishwashers and washing machines where possible. There are lots more tips on how to conserve water in your home on our Conservation section.

When works are complete it may take up to three hours for normal water supply to return to all customers but it is important to continue to follow the HSE guidance on hand-washing.

Speaking about the works, Donal Heaney, Irish Water said, “We understand that this type of work can be inconvenient and working in partnership with Meath County Council we will make every effort to minimise any disruption that these necessary works may cause. The delivery of essential repairs and maintenance at treatments plants is an essential part of what we do in order to safeguard the water supply to homes and businesses and ensure a safer, more sustainable water supply now and into the future.”

Irish Water continues to work at this time, with our local authority partners, contractors and others to safeguard the health and well-being of staff and the public and to ensure the continuity of drinking water and wastewater services.
