Notice to conserve water from Williamstown water supply lifted
Irish Water would like to thank the people supplied by the Williamstown Water Supply for adhering to advice to conserve water over the past couple of days. The notice to conserve has now been lifted with the plant back to full production.
On Sunday evening, Irish Water issued a plea to all water consumers in the area to conserve water due to water production issues at the treatment plant following heavy rainfall on Saturday night and Sunday morning. This affected the amount of available treated water in the system and meant that demand was not being met at times.
Irish Water’s Operations and Maintenance Lead for Galway City and County, Ger Greally said “Irish Water would like to thank consumers in the Williamstown area for conserving water over the past couple of days and apologises for any inconvenience this has caused. Irish Water working in partnership with Galway County Council worked hard to ensure the treatment plant continued to produce compliant water despite high turbidity levels in the raw water. Thankfully the raw water conditions have returned to normal and we will continue to monitor the situation closely, particularly over the rest of week as more heavy rain is predicted”.
Irish Water working in partnership with Galway County Council would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused and would like to thank the public for their co-operation.For more information, please call our customer care team on 1850 278 278.
