Water supply disruption this week to Clare community

THERE will be disruption to water supply in a Clare community this week as part of essential improvement work.
Irish Water, working in partnership with Clare County Council, is carrying out water main improvement work between Mullagh and Milltown Malbay.
In order to progress this essential work, there will be disruption to water supplies in the area on Tuesday and Thursday.
On Tuesday, May 25 from 10am to 4pm works will impact water supply primarily to Miltown Malbay village; but will also impact on Spanish Point and surrounding areas.
These works will also impact on all group schemes fed from the supply including Rinnen and Glendine schemes.
On Thursday, May 27, from 10am to 4pm works will impact water supply to the same areas and schemes.
It may take 2-3 hours for normal water supply to return to all customers, but, Irish Water says, it is important to continue to follow the HSE guidance on hand-washing.
The work involves the installation of 4.7km of new water main to replace old mains 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.
The works got underway in October and are expected to be completed by the end of June.
Irish Water and Clare County Council have said they understand the inconvenience when an outage occurs and thank customers for their patience while we carry out this essential work.
“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. For updates please see the supply and service section of our website,” a spokesperson for Irish Water said.
