Irish Water and Tipperary County Council plan to carry out works to repair a large leak at Ballinard Bridge near Fethard over the coming weeks.

The leak is causing the loss of approximately 30,000 litres of treated water every hour. This is impacting on the supply to homes, farms and businesses in the area.

The works to replace a section of old water main will require the closure of Ballinard Bridge for a period of three weeks from this Friday, November 13. A traffic management plan is in place for the duration of the work, with diversions clearly signposted for traffic in the vicinity.

Updates will be posted on the Supply and Service Updates section of Irish Water’s website.

Irish Water regrets any inconvenience as a result of this essential work and thanks customers and road users for their patience while we work to complete these repairs. Our customer care helpline is open 24/7 on 1850 278 278 and customers can also contact us on Twitter @IWCare with any queries.

Irish Water is working at this time, with our Local Authority partners, contractors and others to safeguard the health and well-being of both staff and the public and to ensure the continuity of critical drinking water and wastewater services. Irish Water would like to remind people to follow the HSE COVID-19 advice and ensure frequent handwashing.
