NOTICE: Irish Water are to cut off water to large parts of Dundalk on Sunday

Irish Water are going to work on a watermain connection on the Newry Road.

Irish Water wish to advise that in order to facilitate a watermain connection on the Newry Road, Dundalk there will be disruption and shut off to the water supply on Sunday, 5th February 2017 between 07:00 and 14:00 hours.  

Areas affected will include Newry Road, Armagh Road, Doylesfort Road, Racecourse Road, Ballymascanlon, Jenkinstown and Lordship.

Irish Water wish to apologise for any inconvenience caused. 

At the beginning of 2015, 121 drinking water treatment plants, supplying 940,000 people, required major upgrading to avoid drinking water contamination. Up to 49% of all drinking water was lost before it reached our taps.

23,000 people were on boil water notices and at least 180,000 properties were at risk of not meeting the EU guideline on the maximum levels of lead in drinking water.

To transform water services Irish Water has developed a seven year Business Plan with the overriding objective of delivering a quality service to customers.
