Temporary water outage to strengthen the water network in Dunmanway

Uisce Éireann and Cork County Council wish to advise customers in the Dunmanway area, that an essential water outage is required from 4pm to 8pm on Thursday, 16 June.

Approximately 1000 properties in Dunmanway town, Darkwood, Kilbarry, Maugh, Ballyhalwick and surrounding areas may be affected by reduced pressure and water outages over from 4pm to 8pm. It may take an additional two or three hours for supply to be fully restored to all customers. 

The works are required to support the delivery of water network improvement works which are ongoing in Dunmanway as part of Uisce Éireann's national Leakage Reduction Programme. This project is being undertaken to strengthen the water supply and reduce leakage on the water network in the general area.

Steven Blennerhassett, Uisce Éireann, said, "These works are required as we continue on improving the water network in Cork County. There will be traffic management in place, but we hope this will cause minimal impact to road users and residents.

"As the water supply returns, there may be some temporary discolouration of water and occasionally issues such as internal airlocks. For helpful tips on what to do following an outage, including clearing airlocks, visit the Uisce Éireann website.

"Uisce Éireann understands the inconvenience when a planned outage occurs and thanks customers for their patience while we complete these essential works."
