Limerick City water supply may change colour on Tuesday

PEOPLE in Limerick City and environs are being advised that essential maintenance testing work between the Clareville Water Treatment Plant and Newcastle Reservoir may lead to a discoloration in their water supply next Tuesday.

There is no risk to public health from the discoloration which may take up to 24 hours to clear and there is no restriction on the continued use of water for all purposes.

Irish Water Operational Lead Duane O’Brien, said the work was being undertaken to determine the location of a large leak on the network.

“Although this may result in water discoloration for a 24 hour period, it will allow us to strengthen the water network and provide a clean and safer water supply for our customers.

“Irish Water understands the inconvenience when a planned outage occurs and thanks customers for their patience while we complete these essential works,” he added.
