• Vulnerable customers who registered with Irish Water are being supplied water
  • Tankers have replenished water storage tanks in Our Lady’s Hospital in  Navan and Meath Disability Services

Irish Water crews are on site in Navan this morning where the trunk main that feeds water into the town has burst. Repair materials are on site and the repair is progressing well. Full supply is expected to be restored later today.

The R162 Navan/Kingstown Road at the bottom of Proudstown Hill is closed while crews work on the pipe.

Potentially between 5,000 – 10,000 customers are affected in the areas north, west and south in Navan town and some surrounding areas.

There is some water remaining in the network and many customers will have storage in their tanks so may not experience a full outage as yet but will be experiencing reduced pressure.

Supply is maintained to other areas from the Kilcarn WTP specifically the Dublin site of Navan and surrounding areas.

Tankers have been mobilised and have replenished water storage tanks in Our Lady’s Hospital in Navan and are doing the same for Meath Disability Services.

Tankers are on standby for residential use but have not yet been deployed as the outage is under a 24 hour period.
