Louth update on restoration of mains water supply 2pm on Thursday, 27 July
Irish Water and Louth County Council confirms that mains water supply has now been restored to all areas of Drogheda, Clogherhead and Termonfeckin. There will continue to be isolated areas and areas on high ground that may experience disruption and or low pressure for some hours. When the water returns, it may appear low in pressure at first but it should build back up over a number of hours. There may be some slight discolouration of the water but this can be cleared by running the cold kitchen tap. For information on how to remove air locks in your home, please view our guide on how to check for and clear airlocks.
Temporary water stations update:
- all standpipe supplies have been stood down at 1pm
- all remaining water stations are being incrementally stood down this afternoon
Irish Water, Louth County Council and Meath County Council would like to thank all customers affected for their continued patience and understanding during this difficult period. We also sincerely thank the Defence Forces, the Civil Defence and Fire Services of Louth and Meath, local scouts, other voluntary groups and the wider community in Louth and Meath, Northern Ireland Water, Local Authorities from around the country and private companies for their huge assistance in distributing water over recent days.
