Kiltyclogher Public Water Supply Scheme Boil Water Notice lifted with immediate effect
333 people removed from boil water notice
Irish Water and Leitrim County Council wish to notify all consumers on the Kiltyclogher Public Water Supply, that following advice from the Health Service Executive, the boil water notice issued on the supply in August 2015 is now lifted with immediate effect.
Customers can now resume normal use of the water supply for drinking, food preparation and brushing teeth. The Kiltyclogher Public Water Supply was placed on the boil water notice because the source was vulnerable to contamination, particularly during dry spells.
Irish Water appointed a contractor, Ward and Burke Construction Ltd, to construct a new interconnecting rising mains and new pumping station to extend the North Leitrim Regional Water Supply Scheme to supply the Kiltyclogher Public Water Supply. These works have now been completed and fully treated and compliant water is being supplied to the 333 people on the Kiltyclogher scheme. The works also included the construction of a new 4.5km distribution main from Coolodonnell reservoir to supply the village of Rossinver.
Irish Water and Leitrim County Council would like to thank the general public for their patience, cooperation and assistance during the period of the boil water notice and greatly regrets any inconvenience caused to householders, the farming and the business communities.
The Irish Water Customer Contact Centre (1850 278 278) is available to answer customer queries in relation to this water notice. Further information and additional advice for customers is available on our service and supply section.
