Essential upgrade works to safeguard the water supply in West Finglas

22 November 2022

Irish Water is working in partnership with Dublin City Council to prevent water leakage and safeguard the water supply for homes and businesses in West Finglas, with essential upgrade works due to take place on Thursday, 24 November from 1pm until 5pm.

As part of the national Leakage Reduction Programme, crews will endeavour to complete these essential works as quickly as possible and minimise disruption to the local community. However, some customers on the Cardiffsbridge Road, Glenties Drive, Glenties Park, Tolka Valley View, Rathvilly Drive, Berryfield Road, Valeview Gardens, Kippure Park, Saint Helena's Road, Barnamore Crescent and surrounding areas in West Finglas may experience intermittent interruptions to their water supply during these times. Typically, it takes two to three hours following restoration time for normal supply to be fully restored to all areas.

Customers may also experience some temporary discolouration of water following the works and on occasion issues such as internal airlocks may arise. For advice on clearing discoloration and airlocks, visit the Issues during or after an outage section of our website.

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

Irish Water and Dublin City 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 Water Supply Updates section of our website. 

These works are being carried out by GMC Utilities Ltd on behalf of Irish Water.
