WATER restrictions for approximately 1,500 Kildysart, Cranny and Coolmeen residents will extend to at least 18 days, a statement issued from Clare County Council on Wednesday has revealed.
The restrictions were put in place on July 29 by the Health Service Executive (HSE), in conjunction with Irish Water and Clare County Council. They advised that water provided by the Kildysart Public Water Supply was not suitable for drinking until further notice. The precautionary measure was introduced due to water discolouration caused by increased manganese levels in the supply.
In their most recent statement, Clare County Council said the restriction will remain in place until the end of this week and that more information will be made available on Friday.
“The water restrictions will remain in place until Friday at least when a scheduled meeting between the HSE, Irish Water and Clare County Council will take place to discuss the results of water quality tests carried out in recent days. A further update will be issued early Friday afternoon. Water tankers and the existing restrictions remain in place in the meantime,” it stated.
