The water supply has been restored to customers impacted by the water outage at the Ardee water treatment plant. Irish Water acknowledge there may be a very small number of isolated areas within the supply footprint that have low water pressure. This is primary due to the configuration of the network and water pressure variations in the area. Normal water pressure will be restored throughout the day.

The water treatment plant was brought back into production yesterday morning and the water levels in the reservoirs located at Sliabh Breagh and Blakestown have been refilling over the last 24  hours. The water supply was restored to customers in Ardee town yesterday, water was supplied from Collon to the town to increase the amount of water available for customers. Water was restored to customers supplied from the Blakestown reservoir this morning.

Irish Water are continuing to top up the Blakestown reservoir with tankered water. This will continue until the water level in the reservoir fully refills.

We apologise to customers for the inconvenience caused as a result of the outage and thank you for your patience while we worked to restore a water supply to all customers. Customers can contact our care helpline  24/7 on 1850 278 278 or on Twitter if you have any queries.
