Repairs completed and water supply returning to all customers in Duleek

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

Water supply has returned to the majority of customers in Duleek following a burst to a water main this morning.

Uisce Éireann crews were immediately deployed and worked hard to restore normal water supply to impacted customers as quickly as possible in Duleek, Donore, Roughgrange, Corballis, Carranstown, Downestown, Gilltown, Drumman, Lougher, Garballagh, Knockisland, Knockcommon, Rossnaree and surrounding areas.

Following the repair work, it may take some time for normal supply to fully restore to all areas, especially for those on higher ground or at the end of the network. Anyone who experiences issues with discolouration is asked to run the cold water tap in the kitchen for a few minutes. Doing this usually clears any unusual colour. Further information on discoloured water is available at https://www.water.ie/help/water-quality/discoloured-water/.

Uisce Éireann’s Michael Cunniffe, thanked customers for their patience as crews completed the works to restore normal water supply as quickly and safely as possible. “On behalf of Uisce Éireann, I’d like to thank impacted stakeholders for their patience, co-operation, and assistance while we worked to complete the repairs as quickly as possible”.

Uisce Éireann understands the inconvenience when an unplanned outage occurs and thanks customers for their patience while we worked to restore supply. The Uisce Éireann customer care helpline is open 24/7 on 1800 278 278 and customers can also contact us on X @IWCare with any queries.
