Works progress to improve Spiddal supply

09 April 2021

Uisce Éireann, working in partnership with Galway County Council, is progressing essential works in the village today to improve water supply to homes and businesses in the village and surrounding areas.

In order to safely facilitate the works a water outage is scheduled to take place from 10am to 2pm on Friday, 9 April 2021. While these works are ongoing customers in the village centre will experience a water outage. Following the completion of the works it may take a short period of time for the network to refill and for normal water supply to return to all impacted customers. Works are being carried out by P&D Lydon on behalf of Uisce Éireann and will be delivered in adherence with current government and HSE advice on COVID-19.

Speaking about the works, Uisce Éireann’s Drinking Water Lead, Tim O’Connor said: “These works are essential to repair a leaking valve and contribute to our ongoing programme of reducing leakage on the Spiddal Public Water Supply. Traffic management will be in place at the crossroads in Spiddal until mid-afternoon.

Uisce Éireann and Galway County Council understand the inconvenience when outages occur and thank customers for their patience while we complete these essential works to safeguard water supply for customers in these areas.

Our 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 see the Supply and Service Updates section of our website.

Uisce Éireann continues to work at this time, with our Local Authority partners, contractors and others to safeguard the health and well-being of both staff and the public and to ensure the continuity of critical drinking water and wastewater services. Uisce Éireann would like to remind people to follow the HSE COVID-19 advice and ensure frequent handwashing.
