Water supplied from Ballymore Eustace Water Treatment plant remains safe to drink
06 October 2023
The raw water supply to Ballymore Eustace Water Treatment Plant is taken from Poulaphouca Reservoir (Blessington Lake), and is monitored continuously via 24/7 instrumentation, a laboratory sampling program and visual inspections of the reservoir. Further quality analysis and checks take place through each step of the treatment process and in the distribution network to ensure the water supplied to customers is safe to drink. Algae blooms do periodically occur for a variety of reasons, but do not typically impact the treatment process at Ballymore Eustace Water Treatment Plant.
