Irish Water advises customers that Loughrea Public Water Supply continues to be safe for consumption
Irish Water would like to assure customers supplied by the Loughrea Public Water Supply that their water supply is fully compliant with all drinking water regulations. All of Irish Water’s sampling results indicate that chlorine levels in the network are high and the Ultra Violet system at the treatment plant is fully functioning.
Irish Water carries out regular testing and monitoring of all public water supplies in Ireland in accordance with EU legislation.
What happens when a drinking water exceedance occurs?
When a drinking water exceedance occurs, Irish Water carries out an assessment and where necessary, consults with the Health Service Executive (HSE) to seek their advice in the interest of protecting public health. Where required, Irish Water also notifies the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
We are aware of concerns in one housing estate in Loughrea and carried out tests in the area in February which have all returned compliant.
Irish Water carried out further tests in the same housing estate in Loughrea on Tuesday, 3 March 2020 and results received today have again returned compliant with EU drinking water legislation.
