NORMAL water supply is returning to parts of North and East Clare following bursts in recent days.
Uisce Éireann have successfully completed repairs to two significant bursts in the county with supply now returning to customers in affected areas.
Crews were deployed by Uisce Éireann to carry out repairs and worked hard to restore normal water supply to impacted customers supplied by Ballymacraven Water Treatment Plant and O’Briensbridge Water Treatment Plant. Areas impacted included, Kilfenora, Lisdoonvarna, Fanore, Doolin, Ballyvaughan, O’Briensbridge and Bridgetown.
Repairs were also successfully completed at Old Doolough Water Treatment plant following a mechanical failure at the plant and water has been restored to all customers.
Following the repairs carried out by dedicated water service crews in Clare, it may take some time for normal supply to fully restore to all areas, especially for those on higher ground or at the end of the network. Anyone who experiences issues with discolouration are asked to run the cold water tap in the kitchen for a few minutes. Doing this usually clears any unusual colour.
Darragh Conneely, Operations Lead with Uisce Éireann, thanked customers for their patience while work was underway. “On behalf of Uisce Éireann, I’d like to thank impacted stakeholders for their patience, co-operation, and assistance while we worked to complete the repairs as quickly as possible and regret the inconvenience”.
Uisce Éireann’s customer care team is available to help 24/7 on 1800 278 278.
