Issued Thursday, November 11 2021 – Irish Water, working in partnership with Waterford City and County Council, would like to inform customers supplied by the Deelish public water supply that the boil water notice issued on the supply on 28 October has been lifted with immediate effect.
Following consultation with the HSE, Irish Water and Waterford City and County Council are advising customers that the drinking water can now be consumed as normal.
It was necessary to issue the boil water notice on 28 October due to issues at the water treatment plant, which may have compromised water quality. Irish Water operation and compliance experts worked with colleagues in Waterford City and County Council to carry out the necessary works at the plant to enable the notice to be lifted as quickly as possible.
Irish Water’s Asset Operations Lead, Ronan Walsh, commented: “Irish Water and Waterford City and County Council would like to thank the customers who were affected by this notice for their patience and cooperation while essential works were carried out at the water treatment plant to ensure the notice could be lifted as quickly as possible.
“Irish Water acknowledges the impact and inconvenience caused by the imposition of a boil water notice to homes and businesses. Our priority is the provision of safe, clean drinking water and safeguarding that water supply for the future is a vital focus.”
