Kiltimagh water supply interruption update
Some customers in Westport Town my experience intermittent low water pressure
A power outage, due to storm Eleanor has impacted the water treatment plant in Kiltimagh. Irish Water working with Mayo County Council have put in place a temporary power supply to run the Plant during the power outage. This has facilitated the return of water supply to many customers in the Kiltimagh area. It may take a number of hours for a normal water pressure to return to customers.
Due to the low water level in Kiltimagh Reservoir the water supply to approximately 240 properties in Treenkeel/Teanlaur, Carrick area, Galboy area Bohola Road, Kilkelly Road and Balla Road will be restored at the latest by midmorning tomorrow Wednesday, 4 January.
An alternative water supply will be available overnight at Supervalu Carpark in Kiltimagh. Customers are reminded to use their own containers when taking water from the tankers and to boil water before consumption as a precautionary measure.
We thank customers for their patience in Treenkeel/Teanlaur, Carrick area, Galboy area Bohola Road, Kilkelly Road and Balla Road while we work to restore the water level in the reservoir overnight.
We thank the ESB employees for their assistance and Mayo County Council employees for their assistance in bringing the water treatment plant back into production and for the ongoing provision of a water tanker.
Due to an issue associated with Storm Eleanor, some areas of Westport Town may experience intermittent low pressure in their water supply through this evening and tonight. It is expected that this issue will be resolved once pressure build backs into the water distribution network.
