Water restrictions in place at Carraroe due to mechanical issues at plant
Water restrictions in place effective immediately
Irish Water is advising customers supplied from the Carraroe public water supply that due to exceptional demand and mechanical issues at the plant, water restrictions are in place effective immediately. Water supply will be restored from tomorrow morning with further restrictions expected to be imposed again tomorrow afternoon.
The extremely cold weather that we are currently experiencing is causing issues for water processing at the plant and is also hampering repairs. This situation could continue for a number of days and a further update will be issued tomorrow
In partnership with Galway County Council, we are working hard to maintain a supply to the village centre and nursing home.
Customers asked not to run their taps
We are asking Customers not to run their taps as it is causing difficulties in many areas with water treatment plants struggling to keep up with demand.
The following areas in Co. Galway will experience reduced pressure and/or loss of supply due to this increase in demand over the coming days: Kilkerrin/Moylough, Williamstown, Tír an Fhia, Letterfrack, Tully, Clifden and Clonbur.
Irish Water working in partnership with Galway County Council would like to apologise to customers for the inconvenience this is causing and assures customers that repairs will be completed as soon as possible.
Updates posted to Supply and Service section
We will issue an update when more information becomes available. Updates will also be posted to the supply and service section.
