Water outages expected in Gort throughout the week

Galway Daily news overnight water outages

People living in the Gort area may experience water outages throughout the week due to work at the water treatment plant.

Irish Water and the county council are carrying out upgrade works on the treatment plant for the Gort Public supply scheme.

These are expected to continue until Friday, and may cause intermittent water outages during the day.

“While these works are underway, customers in the area may experience a slight increase in the taste and smell of chlorine in their drinking water,” the county council said.

“Irish Water would like to assure all customers supplied by Gort Water Supply Scheme that the drinking water is safe to drink and the level of chlorine in your water is carefully monitored and controlled to ensure it is maintained at levels that are not harmful to health.”
