Water supply restored to most customers in Emly area following repair of burst pipe
A normal water supply should now be returning for most customers
Repairs have been completed on a burst pipe which affected supply for customers in the Emly area yesterday and earlier today.
A normal water supply should now be returning for most customers. However, some customers on higher ground or at the extremities of the network may continue to experience outages or low pressure over the weekend. This is due to the depletion of water levels in reservoirs as a result of the burst. The supply should return to normal for all customers as these reservoirs replenish over the coming days.
To accommodate any customers still experiencing issues, water tankers will continue to be available at the following locations:
- GAA pitch, Emly
Irish Water makes every effort to ensure that the alternative drinking water supply provided, including the tanker and dispensing tap, are adequately disinfected. However as it is not practical to provide sterilised containers for the public to transport drinking water from the tanker to their homes, we cannot guarantee that any containers used by the public do not negatively impact or contaminate the drinking water. Therefore, as a precautionary measure, it is recommended that any members of the public who obtain water from a tanker or bowser boil the water before use.
Irish Water apologises to customers for the inconvenience caused and thanks them for their patience while we work to restore normal water supplies.
