In a statement issued this afternoon Irish Water has provided an update on the Boil Water Notice issued for Coolgreany Public Water Supply with the addendum; “WATER HELD IN STORAGE OR BOTTLED FROM SUNDAY SHOULD ALSO BE BOILED BEFORE USE.”
“Irish Water, working in partnership with Wexford County Council wishes to advise customers on the Coolgreany Public Water Supply that the Boil Water Notice issued yesterday remains in place to protect the health of consumers. In addition, Irish Water would like to remind customers that water that has been in storage since Sunday November 28, should also be boiled,” said Irish Water.
The decision to put a Boil Water Notice in place was made following consultation with the HSE due to water with low residual disinfectant entering the supply on Sunday, November 28. Water held in storage, used to make ice or bottled on Sunday should also be boiled as a precaution.
Irish Water also wishes to advise that should any customer begin to feel unwell, to please contact your medical practitioner for advice immediately.
This notice applies to all consumers on the Coolgreany Public Water Supply. All consumers affected by this notice must boil their water before drinking.
Irish Water and Wexford County Council will continue to liaise and consult with the Health Service Executive with a view to lifting the Boil Water Notice as soon as practicable. You will be kept informed through WexfordLocal.com, www.water.ie and Irish Water Customer Contact Centre: 1800 278 278.
