Planned outages in Bantry for essential works to the water network

Information below is relevant until further updates are provided here or on our Supply and Service Updates section.

Uisce Éireann is carrying out essential works to the water network in Bantry from next week. To facilitate these works, essential water outages are required.

The essential works are being carried out as part of Uisce Éireann’s Leakage Reduction Programme and will strengthen the water supply network in the area by reducing leakage and improving operational performance of the water network.

Speaking about the essential works, Programme Manager with Uisce Éireann, Jack Cronin said: “Every effort will be made to reduce the impact of these works on homes and businesses and to restore the water supply as quickly as possible. We understand the impact that outages can have on customers and would like to thank the local community in advance for their patience and co-operation during the works.”

The outages will take place from 10pm to 2am on Monday 17 June, Tuesday 18 June, Wednesday 19 June and Thursday 20 June. During this time approximately 600 homes and businesses in Newtown, Lahadane, Dromnafinshin, Cappanavar, Loughdeeveen, Dromacappul, Carrigboy, Dunnamark Mill-Lot, Caher, Gurteenroe, Reenydonagan, Laharan West, Ballylickey, Reenadisert, Snave, Barnagearagh, Dromduff West, Mill Little, Coorycommane and surrounding areas may experience reduced water pressure or supply interruptions.

As the water supply returns, there may be some increased instances of discoloured water in the short-term. For helpful tips on what to do following an outage, visit the after an outage section.
