Irish Water will this week begin the process to take in charge the administration of over 6,600 business customer accounts in County Clare. The change will see responsibility for account administration for existing business customers in Clare move to Irish Water from Clare County Council. Charges for business customers, credit terms and the frequency of billing will remain unchanged while this transition is taking place.
Business customers in Clare will now have a single point of customer contact for all queries in relation to water supply, wastewater treatment and business account management. Irish Water will contact all 6,600 business customers and other affected groups directly, once the transition takes place. Bills will be issued from Irish Water directly, as they fall due, from December onwards.
Irish Water recently completed a €4.6 million water mains rehabilitation project in Ennis, which has led to significant improvements in network performance, security of supply and efficiency for businesses and homes in the area.
In addition, upgrade works are planned for several water supply schemes around the county, including in Newmarket-on-Fergus, Doonbeg and Inch/Mahonburg on the outskirts of Ennis.
