Essential repair works to safeguard the water supply in Castlelambert

02 September 2022

Irish Water is working in partnership with Galway County Council to safeguard the water supply for homes and businesses supplied by Castlelambert Group Water Scheme in Co Galway. 

Essential water mains repair works are scheduled to take place on Monday 5 September from 9am until 5pm. During the works, customers supplied by Castlelambert Group Water Scheme may experience temporary, intermittent low pressure and/or water outages.

Typically, it takes two to three hours following restoration time for normal supply to be fully restored to all areas. 

Speaking about the works, Rónan Daly, Irish Water said, “Irish Water understands that this type of work can be inconvenient and, working in partnership with Galway County Council, we will make every effort to minimise the disruption that these necessary works may cause. 

Customers may experience some temporary discolouration of water following the works and occasionally issues such as internal airlocks may arise. For advice on clearing discoloration and airlocks, visit www.water.ie/water-supply/supply-issues/following-an-outage.”  

Vulnerable customers who have registered with Irish Water receive direct communications from us for planned and unplanned outages lasting more than four hours.

Irish Water and Galway County Council regret any inconvenience caused. The Irish Water customer care helpline is open 24/7 on 1800 278 278 and customers can also contact us on Twitter @IWCare with any queries. For updates, please visit the Supply and Service Updates section of our website.
