Uisce Éireann’s Eoin Hughes, says that as sections are replaced they will consult with the HSE with a view to lifting the Boil Water Notice in sections.
The works by Farrans Construction, which will run until Spring next year, will also involve laying new connections from the public water main in the road to customers’ property
In the meantime, the boil notice remains in place for Castle Street, Church Street, King Street, Kelly Street, Piggott Street, Moore Street, Dolphin Street, Mount Carmel Crescent, Athenry Road, Liam Mellows Terrace, Cross Street and St. Brendan’s Day Care Centre.
