Customers on the Kilkelly Water Scheme will experience a water outage tomorrow, Thursday 19 May due to essential works on the supply.
Irish Water, in partnership with Mayo County Council, will carry out improvement works at Shammer Reservoir.
While crews are on site, residential and business customers in Kilkelly Town, Shammer, Cloonfallagh and Woodfield will experience an outage potentially from 9am to 6pm.
Speaking about the works, Ger Greally, Water Operation Lead for Irish Water, said: “Irish Water understands the inconvenience caused when main works occur and thanks customers for their patience while we complete these essential works to safeguard the water supply for homes and businesses in the Kilkelly area”.
