Water supply restored to areas affected by outage in Drogheda
31 March 2023
Uisce Éireann is working in partnership with Louth County Council to deliver critical sewer network upgrades in Greenhills, Drogheda.
As part of the sewer critical network upgrades in Greenhills, Drogheda, there was a planned interruption to the watermain supply in the area, including Greenhills, Baltray and Termonfeckin and surrounding areas on Wednesday, 29 March. Due to the complexity of work, there was a prolonged outage which effected homes and businesses in the area.
Water supply has returned to all customers this morning.
Padraig Hanly, Programme Manager at Uisce Éireann said, “We regret the inconvenience caused to customers and would like to assure them that restoring normal water services was a top priority for us. We would like to thank the people of Drogheda for their patience and reassure them we worked as quickly as possible to restore the water supply.”
“Due to the complex nature and flow of the network, there was a prolonged outage. There was a further need to interrupt the water supply for longer than previously anticipated.”
