Works on water network improvement is expected to cause disruption to supply in Miltown Malbay, Cooraclare, Creegh, Spanish Point and Mullagh next week.
Installation of a 4.7km new water main to replace old mains that had been bursting frequently will be carried out by Irish Water in association with Clare County Council. A number of group water schemes will be supplied from the public mains.
Disruption to supply will be experienced next week as part of the works which began in October and are expected to completed by the end of June.
From 9am to 6pm on Monday (February 22nd), water supply will be impacted on the entire Old Doolough Water Supply Zone, including Milltown Malbay, Mullagh, Corraclare, Creegh and all surrounding areas. These works will also impact on all group schemes fed from the supply.
On Wednesday (February 24th) from 9am to 5pm works will impact water supply primarily to Mullagh village but will also impact on Milltown Malbay, Spanish Point and surrounding areas. These works will also impact on all group schemes fed from the supply.
“It may take 2-3 hours for normal water supply to return to all customers but it is important to continue to follow the HSE guidance on hand-washing,” a spokesperson for Irish Water explained.
