Galway Daily news Kinvara Boil Water Notice

Works to improve the water network in Loughrea Town are continuing with Uisce Éireann working to lift the Boil Water Notice affecting customers there as soon as possible.

The project, being carried out in partnership with Galway County Council, involves the replacement of 1.8km of cast iron water mains with new pipework.

Uisce Éireann’s Justin Doran explained that as sections of the existing cast iron network are replaced, Uisce Éireann and Galway County Council will be in a position to consult with the HSE with a view to lifting the Boil Water Notice in sections.

“Crews are currently working on replacing 619m of the 1.8km of old cast iron water mains, which is a critical step in safeguarding the water supply to homes and businesses in Loughrea ensuring a safer, more sustainable water supply,” he said.

“We acknowledge the inconvenience that customers on this supply are experiencing and would like to reassure them that we are working as quickly and as efficiently as possible to complete this vital programme of works for the town and provide them with a safe and secure water supply for generations to come.”
