Issues with Clonroche drinking water

By Dan Walsh

Uisce Eireann has detected 13 exceedances for pesticides in the public drinking water supplies in Clonroche in 2022 as part of its public water supply monitoring programme.

The Clonroche water supply abstracts raw water from local boreholes which are vulnerable to runoff from land.

Uisce Éireann is asking users of any herbicide or pesticide products to continue to consider the vulnerability of their local drinking water supplies to pesticide contamination and the importance of these supplies to local homes and businesses in the community.
