Works in Arklow may cause disruption to supply on Thursday May 16th
Water main improvement works may cause disruption from 9.00pm to 2.00am
Irish Water wish to advise customers in Arklow that as part of water main improvement works, there may be disruption to water supply from 9.00pm on Thursday 16th May 2019 until 2.00am. The works being undertaken are part of the construction of 3.1km of new water mains along the public road and the installation of new service connections from the new water main to each customer’s property.
Possible reduced water pressure and water outages
During these essential planned works homes and businesses in the Arklow area may be impacted by reduced water pressure and water outages. Following the completion of these works water supply may take 2-3 hours to return as water refills the network.
We understand this type of work can be inconvenient and will ensure our work crews make every effort to minimise any disruption these works may cause. Customers can call our customer helpline on 1850 278 278 for any questions in relation to the works.
Part of our national Leakage Reduction Programme
These works are being carried out as part of our national Leakage Reduction Programme which will, over the next 4 years, see €500 million invested to reduce the level of leakage across the country by fixing and replacing ageing water mains. This will ensure a safe, reliable water supply which is vital for our health, our environment and our growing population and economy.
