Works progress on the Cork South Docks Networks Extension Project

01 November 2021

Irish Water, working in partnership with Cork City Council, are continuing to improve watermains connections on Anglesea Street to strengthen the water supply network in the Cork city south docks.

Irish Water wishes to advise customers on South Terrace, Anglesea Street (south of Copley Street), Summerhill, Quaker Road, Windmill Road, Langford Row, Parkowen, Southern Road, Tonyville, South City Link Road, Capwell Business Depot, Capwell Road, Capwell Avenue, South Douglas Road and surrounding areas in Cork City, that there may be disruption to water supply from 11pm on Thursday, 4 November until 3am on Friday, 5 November.

During these essential works, homes and businesses in the above areas may be impacted by reduced water pressure and water outages. Following the completion of improvement works; water supply may take 2-3 hours to return as water refills the network. Work crews will endeavour to complete works ahead of time in order to expedite the return of supply to the affected areas.

Irish Water understands this type of work can be inconvenient and will ensure our work crews make every effort to minimise any disruption these works may cause.

Irish Water’s customer care helpline is open 24/7 on 1800 278 278 and customers can also contact us on Twitter @IWCare with any queries. For updates please visit the Supply and Service Updates section or set your location on our website.

The works on Anglesea Street are being carried out as part of the Irish Water’s Growth and Development programme.
