Restriction due to water conservation works at Athlone Treatment Plant
Irish Water wishes to advise customers in Athlone and the surrounding areas that due to water conservation works on the water main network, a water outage will be necessary in Athlone and surrounding areas from tonight Thursday, 13 December from 10pm until 6am on Friday, 14 December. The outage will affect approximately 8,000 customers on the east side of Athlone Town, Baylin, Mount Temple, The Ories, Garrycastle, Dublin Road, Ardnaglug, Fardrum, Moydrum, Blyry, Killyon Hill, Bonavalley and surrounds in Co. Westmeath.
Water supply to the Annagh reservoir will be interrupted while essential works are being carried out and this measure is in order to conserve water to ensure that there is an adequate quantity of treated water in the reservoir to supply industries, schools, residences and commercial activities during business hours.
New water treatment plant for Athlone at Killinure Lough
We are currently at planning preparation stage on a project to provide a new water treatment plant for Athlone at Killinure Lough which will ultimately deal with the current water supply issues being experienced in the town. These issues are due to the age and condition of the water treatment plant there.
