The affected area is supplied from the Loughrea-Knockanima Public Water Supply.

Commenting on the lifting of the notice Tim O’Connor, Irish Water Lead, said, “Public health is our number one priority we would like to apologise  for the inconvenience caused by the imposition of the boil water notice.

“We thank Galway County Council and the HSE for their assistance in working to lift the notice as quickly as possible.”
