Works underway to restore water supply to Malahide customers
Irish Water is working with Fingal County Council to carry out urgent repairs to restore water supply in parts of Malahide, Seabury area. The burst occurred in Dunard estate late last night. Crews are working to repair a burst watermain as quickly and as safely as possible in line with Covid-19 protocols.
Properties in the following areas may be impacted by disruption to their supply while the repairs are underway; R106 Swords Rd down to the left turn junction on Estuary Road, Malahide inc. all of Seabury (left and right of Estuary/Seabury), stretching beyond to Seabury Park including Centra shop complex and Swords Sailing School, Rugby Club on Estuary Road, Broadmeadows; all of Estuary road; Church of the Sacred Heart; Castle Downs road and surrounding areas.
The watermain repairs are expected to be completed by 2pm. Once the repairs are successfully completed, normal water supply will begin to be restored. Full water supply may take 1-2 hours to return as water refills the network.
Irish Water is 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.
