Knocknacarra Burst Water Main Update
The repair to the 300mm diameter rising main supplying the reservoir was completed at 5am this morning.
Irish Water worked in partnership with Galway City Council to repair a burst water main which supplies the Tonabrocky reservoir in Galway City. The repair crew worked throughout the night to complete the repair.
The water level in the Tonabrocky reservoir is quite low due to the burst. It is currently refilling but it is expected that the following areas will experience some low pressure or loss of water supply this morning; Moycullen, Knocknacarra, Kingston, Taylor’s Hill, Clybaun, Cappagh, Letteragh Road, Ballymoneen Road, Bishop O’Donnell Road and higher lying areas in Barna. These interruptions to customers water supply will continue until the water level in the reservoir recovers sufficiently. This may take up to 24 hours.
Updates are available on the Service Updates section of our website and on Twitter @IWCare. For anyone who does not have access to the internet they can call the Irish Water contact centre on 1850 278 278 and quote this unique reference number GAC01541.
Irish Water and Galway City Council would like to thank residents, businesses and visitors to the affected areas of Galway City for their patience and understanding while a normal water supply is restored to all customers.
