Irish Water, working in partnership with Westmeath County Council is working to restore the water supply in Kinnegad town and surrounding areas. Homes and businesses in Kinnegad town, Thomastown, Mullingar Road and surrounding areas in may be impacted by water outages while the repairs are carried underway. 

Crews are on site working to repair the burst as soon as possible. The repair is expected to be completed by 3pm. Once the watermain has been repaired it may take a number of hours for the water supply to return in full to all impacted properties. 

A traffic management system will be in place for the duration of these urgent repair works. 

Irish Water understands the inconvenience when a burst occurs and thanks customers for their patience while we work to repair the burst and restore supply to impacted customers.

Irish Water is working at this time, with our Local Authority partners, contractors and others to safeguard the health and well-being of both staff and the public and to ensure the continuity of critical drinking water and wastewater services. We would like to remind people to follow the HSE COVID-19 advice and ensure frequent handwashing.

Irish Water and Westmeath County Council regrets any inconvenience caused.
