A number of leaks have been found and repaired in recent weeks

Irish Water is working in partnership with Tipperary County Council to repair leaks and safeguard water supply to the Coalbrook Public Water Supply, which serves approximately 1,200 customers in Coalbrook, Ballinastick, Earlshill, Ballincurry, Glengall, Ballingarry and surrounding areas.

A number of leaks have been found and repaired in recent weeks, but demand remains high in the scheme and we are asking customers in the area to be mindful of how they use water. However it is important to continue to follow the HSE guidance on hand washing.

Conserve where possible

While handwashing remains a priority, simple water conservation efforts can have a big impact on reducing demand on the supply. Turning off the tap while brushing your teeth and shaving can save up to 6 litres of water per minute. Taking a shower instead of a bath or using a watering can rather than a hose when gardening can also make a big difference in water use.

We are also reminding people with responsibility for properties that are currently unoccupied to check for leaks and turn off water where it is not required.

There are lots more tips on how to conserve water in your home on our Conservation page.

We are working at this time, with our local authority partners, contractors and others to safeguard the health and well-being of staff and the public and to ensure the continuity of drinking water and wastewater services.
