Update on Boil Water Notices in Tuam and Loughrea
27 October 2023
Uisce Éireann is progressing with works to lift two localised Boil Water Notices in Tuam and Loughrea.
In the meantime, 46 customers in Kilcloghans, Tuam and customers in parts of Loughrea Town are reminded to boil their water before use.
The Loughrea notice affects customers in Castle Street, Church Street, King Street, Kelly Street, Piggott Street, Moore Street, Dolphin Street, Mount Carmel Crescent, Athenry Road, Liam Mellows Terrace, Cross Street, St. Brendan’s Day Care Centre as well the L-8273 between the Gort Road and the Old Galway Road.
Uisce Éireann assures other customers supplied by the Tuam Regional Water Supply Scheme that their water is compliant with regulatory standards and safe to drink.
Uisce Éireann acknowledges the impact of these notice on the communities and we assure customers that we are working as quickly as possible to lift them.
In Tuam we are progressing with a package of works to provide them with a safe and secure water supply for generations to come. Following the successful completion of this programme of remedial works, Uisce Éireann will then consult with the HSE with a view to lifting the Boil Water notice that is currently in place for 46 impacted customers.
In Loughrea, Uisce Éireann is replacing 1.8km of cast iron water mains with new pipework. As sections of the existing cast iron network are replaced, Uisce Éireann will be in a position to consult with the HSE with a view to lifting the Boil Water Notice in sections.
A map of the affected areas is available to view on the Supply and Service Section of our website. Customers can check if their property is included by visiting the Water Quality section of our website and entering the property’s Eircode or by calling the Uisce Éireann’s customer care helpline, open 24/7, on 1800 278 278.
