Essential works planned on the water network on Ballinclea Road serving Killiney
The work will take place from 8am to 6pm on Tuesday, 11 July, 2017
Irish Water and Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council plan to carry out essential maintenance on a water main on Ballinclea Road supplying Killiney from 8am to 6pm on Tuesday, 11 July, 2017.
This work is necessary to support development in the area and may cause a disruption to the water supply for customers in the following areas: Killiney Hill Road, Wyvern Park, Killiney Road, Ballinclea Road, Springhill Park, Angelsea Park, Cluny Grove, Cluny Road, Ballinclea Woods, Beechcourt, Clonlost Killiney Road, Avondale Crescent and Avondale Road. By carrying out this work in a controlled manner, Irish Water aims to minimise inconvenience to homes and businesses.
Michael Kenny, Irish Water’s Operations Lead for Dún Laoghaire Rathdown, commented “We would like to apologise to our customers in Killiney for any inconvenience that may be caused as a result of this essential work. Our priority in carrying out this essential work is to keep any disruption to residents and businesses to an absolute minimum. Customers can contact Irish Water’s customer helpline 24/7 on 1850 278 2787 to get information on the outage.”
Irish Water and Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council will be liaising with all vulnerable customers and other large water users to ensure that the impact on them can be managed and minimised.
It is expected that water supply will be returned to normal to all areas by 6pm on Tuesday, 11 July. However, some customers may continue to experience low or intermittent pressure for a period of time on as flows return to normal throughout the system. Some customers may also notice changes in the colour of their water, such as a dirty or cloudy appearance. If this occurs they are advised to run the cold tap until it runs clear. Customers should also check the clarity of the water before operating washing machines, dishwashers and other appliances.
Irish Water thanks residents and businesses in Killiney Hill Road, Wyvern Park, Killiney Road, Ballinclea Road, Springhill Park, Angelsea Park, Cluny Grove, Cluny Road, Ballinclea Woods, Beechcourt, Clonlost Killiney Road, Avondale Crescent and Avondale Road for their co-operation and patience while this essential work is taking place.
Our 24-hour customer care line (1850 278 278) will be available to answer any customer queries.
