Water supply disruption this week in Clare communities

THERE is to be further disruption to water supplies in a west Clare community this week as work progresses on water main improvements.
These works will impact water supply on Tuesday, June 1, and Thursday, June 3 between 10am and 4pm primarily to Milltown Malbay village. They may however also impact on Spanish Point and surrounding areas. These works may also impact on all group schemes fed from the supply including Rinnen and Glendine schemes.
Irish Water, working in partnership with Clare County Council, is installing 4.7km of new water main to replace old mains in the area which were bursting frequently.
This will result in a more secure and reliable water supplies for local residents and businesses as well as a number of Group Water Schemes supplied from the public mains.
This works got underway in October and are expected to be completed by the end of June.
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.

We are working with our contractors to keep any disruption to a minimum. Our customer care helpline is open 24/7 on 1850 278 278 and customers can also contact us on Twitter @IWCare with any queries.

Irish Water continues to work at this time with our Local Authority partners, contractors and others to safeguard the health and well-being of both staff and the public and to ensure the continuity of critical drinking water and wastewater services. Irish Water would like to remind people to follow the HSE COVID-19 advice and ensure frequent handwashing.
