LIMERICK County Council, following consultation with the Health Service Executive, has this Wednesday removed a drinking water alert that was affecting 2,000 customers in Adare.
The notice was put in place on Friday, 5th December, 2008 following the detection of a deterioration in the water quality leaving the Water Treatment Plant in Adare.
Extensive testing by the Local Authority’s Environmental Laboratory staff has shown that the water being supplied at the Adare Water Treatment Plant continues to meet the drinking water standards.
According to Donal Brennan, a senior engineer at Limerick County Council, “The introduction of a boil notice was deemed a necessary precautionary measure to ensure that public health was not put at risk. Drinking water restrictions affecting 700 households in Adare and surrounding areas have now been lifted”. Limerick County Council says it will continue to monitor the water supply to ensure compliance with water quality standards.
There are now no drinking water alerts affecting water consumers in County Limerick.
