Leak in Enniscorthy water supply

By Dan Walsh

Irish Water, working in partnership with Wexford County Council are calling on residents of Enniscorthy to be mindful of their water usage again today as work continues to identify the location of a significant leak in the town’s water supply network that is resulting in the reservoir levels depleting.

Leak detection staff are actively working on the network and once the location has been identified, crews will carry out works to repair the fault as quickly as possible.
Last night, residents were asked to conserve water for essential daytime use with the public water supply turned off from 10pm to 5am this morning in the town centre areas and also in Cherry Orchard Road, Carrickabruce and The Still Pond. This urgent measure was required due to this significant increase in water leakage in the town’s network.
The Town centre areas include Templeshannon, Templeshannon Quay, Abbey Quay, The Prom, Mill Park Road, Castle Hill, Church Street, Friary Hill, Slaney Street, Market Square, lower section of Main Street, Court Street, St John’s Street, St John’s Villas, Munster Hill, St John’s, Irish Street and Island Road.


Irish Water understands the inconvenience caused to customers and thank the residents of Enniscorthy for their patience while working to locate the leak, carry out the repair and restore normal supply to impacted customers.

Irish Water reminds customers to follow the HSE COVID-19 advice and ensure frequent handwashing.

The Irish Water customer care helpline is open 24/7 on 1850 278 278 and customers can also contact Irish Water via Twitter @IWCare with any queries. For updates, please see the Water Supply Updates section of the Irish Water website.

Irish Water continues to work currently with its 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.
