Works to safeguard the water supply to homes and businesses to take place in Rathdowney, Co. Laois
Customers may experience temporary disruption to their water supply
Irish Water is carrying out essential water network improvement works to safeguard the water supply for homes and businesses in Rathdowney, Co Laois. During these works customers may experience disruption to their water supply on Tuesday 3rd September from 1pm-5pm.
Homes and businesses may be impacted by reduced water pressure and water outages. Following the completion of these improvement works water supply may take 2-3 hours to return as water refills the network.
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.
Customers can call the Irish Water customer helpline on 1850 278 278 for any questions in relation to the works.
Irish Water’s national Leakage Reduction Programme
These works are being carried out as part of Irish Water’s national Leakage Reduction Programme which will see €500 million invested up to the end of 2021 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.
