Works underway to restore water supply in the Kilgarvan area

19 February 2022

Water tanker available at Kilgarvan Church

Irish Water and Kerry County Council are working to resolve mechanical issues caused by Storm Eunice which has impacted water supply in the Kilgarvan area.

A water tanker will be available from 4pm at Kilgarvan church to provide water for householders.

Irish Water makes every effort to ensure that the alternative drinking water supply provided, including the tanker / bowser, and dispensing tap, are adequately disinfected.

Boil water

However, as it is not practical to provide sterilised containers for the public to transport drinking water from the tanker to their homes, we cannot guarantee that any containers used by the public do not negatively impact or contaminate the drinking water.

Therefore, as a precautionary measure, it is recommended that any members of the public who obtain water from a tanker or bowser boil the water before use.
