Update on Kilkerrin & Moylough water supply in County Galway

Irish Water, working in partnership with Galway County Council have been working very hard to restore water to the Kilkerrin/Moylough Public Water Supply.

Areas supplied by Slieveroe Water Tower suffered loss of water supply due to a deterioration in raw water quality as a result of exceptionally heavy rain. 

Due to exceptionally good work by Galway County Council operations crews in Kilkerrin/Moylough, treated water quality has been restored to acceptable levels.
 
It will take several hours for the network to refill entirely so some areas will not have water returned until morning, mainly in the Moylough area.

Areas affected

The areas affected are Kilkerrin and Moylough, impacting 1,500 people. Most homes will have some storage in their tanks so during this time those with water supply should conserve water and not use dishwashers or washing machines if possible. 

Irish Water’s customer support number is available 24/7 on 1850 274274.
