Irish Water, working in partnership with Wexford County Council identified two large leaks today on Enniscorthy town’s water supply network, one of which has been repaired.
A second leak located in Bridge Meadows will be repaired tomorrow morning. The town’s water supply will be shut off tonight (Wednesday) from 10pm to 5am tomorrow morning (Thursday) to conserve the reservoir levels. This will ensure adequate supply in the town tomorrow.
A Water Outage will exist in the Milehouse and Cherryorchard area of Enniscorthy from 10pm this evening until 6am tomorrow morning to facilitate leak detection and reservoir replenishment.
The areas affected will include The Paddocks, Belefield Springs, Bridgemeadows, Shingaun, Cherryorchard Heights, The Orchard, Still Pond and surrounding areas. There may be discolouration and fluctuation of supply when the service is resumed.
Irish Water understands the inconvenience caused to customers and thank the residents of Enniscorthy for their patience while working to carry out repairs 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.
