Irish Water, Ireland’s national water utility responsible for providing and developing water and waste water services throughout Ireland, today confirmed major progress on both the Loughmask and Kiltimagh water supplies in Co. Mayo. Irish water has invested significant resources to address the issue of THMs in the Kiltimagh water supply. The works undertaken by Irish Water were completed earlier this year and are currently going through a process proving period to remove it from the Environmental Protection Agency’s Remedial Action List . Since this investment has taken place there has been no THM exceedance recorded in this supply.
Irish Water has also made significant investment in the Lough Mask Water Treatment Plant to remove the threat of THMs, these were completed last year, since this investment has taken place there has been no THM exceedance recorded on this supply. Based on Irish Waters process audits further upgrades on this scheme are also planned to increase its capacity and overall resilience.
Irish Water is currently in the process of addressing the THM issue on Inis Turk, a design team has been appointed to review the raw water source and the treatment process in order to determine its viability and to identify additional ground water sources.
