The Boil Water Notice affecting around 350 premises in Eyrecourt has been lifted with immediate effect.

The notice was issued by Irish Water in February after low levels of chlorine and coliform bacteria were detected in part of the Ballinasloe Public Water Supply due to a section of old cast iron main.

This has now been replaced and those affected by the notice can resume normal use of the water supply for drinking, food preparation and brushing teeth.

Speaking about the lifting of the notice, Dr Pat O’Sullivan, Irish Water’s Drinking Water Compliance Specialist, that Irish Water acknowledges and understands the impact this Boil Water Notice had on the community, and that they sincerely regret the inconvenience.

“Our drinking water compliance and operational experts worked hard to resolve this issue as quickly and as safely as possible,” he said.

“We are grateful to the media, elected representatives and members of the public who shared the information. We would also like to thank Galway County Council and HSE for their input and support throughout the process.”
