Irish Water understands the inconvenience when a supply outage occurs and thanks customers for their patience while we work to restore normal supply to impacted customers.

After an outage

Following extended outages it may take a number of hours for normal supply to return to some customers at the ends of the network. There may also be some temporary discolouration of water and occasionally issues such as internal airlocks may arise following a prolonged outage. Our following an outage includes helpful tips on what to do following an outage, including clearing airlocks.

We are working 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. Irish Water would like to remind people to follow the HSE COVID-19 advice and ensure frequent handwashing.
