Irish Water has confirmed that the Boil Water Notice issued on 16th July for customers on the Rathangan Water Supply, has been lifted - with immediate effect.
The notice was issued as a precautionary measure, following issues with the disinfection process at the Water Treatment Plant, which led to inadequate chlorination of the public water supply.
Irish Water Regional Operations Manager, John O’Donoghue, said:
“Irish Water acknowledges and understands the impact of this boil water notice on the 6,500 people affected and we sincerely regret the inconvenience.
We endeavoured to keep the public up to date at every stage and we are grateful to the media, elected representatives and members of the public who shared the information.
Should customers have any queries regarding this Boil Water Notice and the lifting of it they should contact Irish Water directly on their 24/7 customer care helpline, 1850 278 278.
