Improvement works at Greenmount Water Treatment Plant may cause temporary supply disruptions

23 February 2022

Irish Water, working in partnership with Louth County Council, advises customers supplied by Greenmount Water Treatment Plant of potential disruption due to improvement works. Works will involve the replacement of a pump to improve operations but may temporarily impact production at the plant and reservoir levels.

Customers in Castlebelligham, Dunleer, Annagassan and surrounding areas may experience temporary low water pressure and/or loss of supply until 10:00am tomorrow, Thursday 24 February. When works are completed it may take 2-3 hours for normal water supply to return to all customers as water refills the reservoir and network. It is important to continue to follow the HSE guidance on hand-washing.

Michael Cunniffe, Irish Water, said, “Irish Water and Louth County Council understands the inconvenience caused when these type of works occur and thanks customers for their patience as work to improve operations at the plant. We will work to restore full supply as quickly as possible following the pump replacement.
