Irish Water and Wexford County Council stated this evening (Monday) they wished to jointly remind customers supplied by the Wexford Town Public Water Supply, that the Boil Water Notice issued on Friday due to high turbidity remains in place.
Ronan Walsh, Water Operations Lead for Irish Water said; “Our number one priority is public health and the safety and well-being of our customers. Whilst we are seeing a reduction of turbidity, the reservoirs are taking longer than expected to reach a satisfactory level, which is important to ensure reliability of supply.
“We will continue to work closely with Wexford County Council and the HSE to monitor the supply and lift the notice as quickly as it is safe to do so. An update will be issued as soon as we have any developments” he added.
Experts from Irish Water and Wexford County Council are continuing to assess the situation with a view to having the notice lifted as quickly as possible. In the meantime, all customers of this supply are advised to boil water before use until further notice.
Vulnerable customers who have concerns can contact the Irish Water customer care team on 1800 278 278.
