Castledermot and surrounding areas were effected.

Uisce Éireann and Carlow County Council wish to notify customers supplied by the Carlow North Regional Public Water Supply that following the completion of remedial measures and the receipt of satisfactory monitoring results, the boil water notice issued on Monday, 13 March is now lifted with immediate effect.

This decision follows consultation undertaken with the HSE (Health Service Executive).

The notice was originally issued due to turbidity impacting the treatment processes at the water treatment plant.

The notice was put in place to protect the health of approximately 8,500 customers supplied by the scheme in Palatine, Killerig/Grange, Rathvilly, South of the River Slaney in Tullow Town and Ballymurphy Road, Ardattin, Ballon, Tankardstown, Rathoe, Bennekerry and surrounding areas in Co Carlow; also Castledermot, Davidstown, Graney, and surrounding areas in Co Kildare; and Liscolman, Ballyconnell and surrounding areas in Co Wicklow.

All consumers on the Carlow North Regional Public Water Supply can now resume normal use of the water supply for drinking, food preparation and brushing teeth.

James O’Toole of Uisce Éireann said: “Uisce Éireann and Carlow County Council wish to thank everyone for their co-operation and assistance during this boil water notice and we greatly regret any inconvenience caused to homes and businesses in the community.

The Uisce Éireann Customer Contact Centre (1800 278 278) is available to answer customer queries in relation to this water notice. Further information is available on www.water.ie.
