Westbury water supply due back on stream shortly

WATER supply is due to return to customers in Rosmadda, Westbury, Corbally and surrounding areas over the course of the evening (Monday, August 10).

Works to restore water supply to customers in Rosmadda, Westbury, Corbally and surrounding areas are progressing well and Irish Water said they expect to restore supply to customers shortly.

When the repair is completed, the utility said that it may take a number of hours for normal supply to return to some customers at the ends of the network.

They have warned that there may also be some temporary discolouration of water and occasionally issues such as internal airlocks may arise following a prolonged outage.

There are helpful tips on what to do following an outage, including clearing airlocks, on the Irish Water website at https://www.water.ie/water-supply/supply-issues/following-an-outage/

If customers have any specific queries or concerns they should contact Irish Water directly at 1850 278 278 and our customer care team will be happy to help.
In the meantime, tankers of water will remain in place until water is fully restored in the following locations:

The Help Centre, Westbury

The Church, Westbury
Customers are reminded to use their own containers when taking water from the tankers and to boil water before consumption as a precautionary measure. Water is safe to use for handwashing and personal hygiene and customers should continue to follow public health advice on handwashing at this time. It is important to continue to follow the HSE guidance on social distancing when collecting water.

The latest updates on these works will be available on the supply and service section of our website https://www.water.ie. The Irish Water customer care helpline is open 24/7 and customers can call us on 1850 278 278. Customers can also contact us on Twitter @IWCare with any queries.
