In a statement issued to WexfordLocal.com this evening, Irish Water, working in partnership with Wexford County Council wish to remind residents and businesses who are supplied by the Enniscorthy Public Water Supply that a Boil Water Notice remains in place and to continue to boil their water for consumption purposes.

Following consultation with the Health Service Executive (HSE) yesterday (Monday), Irish Water and Wexford County Council issued a Boil Water Notice to protect the health of approximately 11,187 consumers supplied by the Enniscorthy Public Water Supply scheme.

This followed the detection of cryptosporidium found at the Vinegar Hill Water Treatment Plant supply. As a precaution, Irish Water and Wexford County Council issued a Boil Water Notice with immediate effect to protect the health of consumers. Any customers with health concerns are advised to contact their GP.

This notice applies to all consumers on the Enniscorthy Public Water supply. 

Updates are available on the Supply and Service Updates section of the Irish Water website, on Twitter @IWCare and via the customer care helpline, open 24/7 on 1800 278 278.
