Flushing works commencing on the water network in areas of Cork City

Following complex repair works in the area last night, this may have caused increased instances in discoloured water at customers taps. Crews are currently on the ground carrying out flushing works to clear the network of sediment from the old cast iron watermains. If your tap water is discoloured, running the tap for up to 20 minutes will usually restore water to a clear colour. Water is safe to drink once the water is running clear. Uisce Éireann continues to advise customers not to drink discoloured water. 

Ongoing testing and analysis of the water supply continues, in conjunction with extensive monitoring across Cork City's distribution network. This ensures the water is compliant with drinking water regulations and is safe to drink. The results of these ongoing tests are shared with the EPA and the HSE. 

If there are water quality issues in your home or business, please contact the Uisce Éireann customer care helpline, open 24/7, on 1800 278 278.
