Irish Water, working in partnership with Galway City Council, wishes to advise customers on the Monivea Road in Galway City that a burst watermain will have an impact on their water supply today.

A second burst to this watermain near the Clayton Hotel occurred early this morning and approximately 800 properties in the Briarhill and Doughiska areas are affected.

Commenting Tim O’Connor, Asset Operations Lead for Irish Water said: “A crew is carrying out emergency repairs and traffic management will be in place while these essential works are underway.

It is likely water supply will be off until 4pm today but it may take 2-3 hours for normal supply to return.

Irish Water understands the inconvenience to customers when their water supply is affected and we would like to thank the public for their patience and cooperation while this unplanned outage is attended to.

Irish Water’s customer care helpline is open 24/7 on 1850 278 278 and customers can also contact us on Twitter @IWCare with any queries. For updates please visit the Supply and Service Updates section of our website.

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