9th March 2018: Irish Water and Waterford City and County Council are please to confirm that Boil Water Notices issued for the eight public water supplies in the county have now been lifted following consultation with the HSE.
The Boil Water Notices were put in place as a precautionary measure after Storm Emma on the following schemes:
- Comeragh (Briska Lower)
Customers supplied by these schemes can now resume normal use of the water for drinking and food preparation.
All customers who were impacted by water outages in Waterford should now have their supply restored to normal. We are however continuing our work to fix leaks throughout the network and this may lead to some intermittent localised outages as leaks are found and repaired.
We would remind the public to remain vigilant in their use of water and to take action to fix leaks on their own properties and report any leaks they see in the public network to Irish Water by contacting 1850 278 278.
Irish Water and Waterford City and County Council would like to thank all affected customers for their patience while we worked to resolve all the issues resulting from the freezing conditions last week.
