Boil notice lifted for County Limerick water supply

IRISH Water has notified customers supplied by Abbeyfeale Public Water Supply that a boil water notice issued last Saturday has been lifted following receipt of remedial measures and consistent, satisfactory monitoring results.

This decision follows consultation undertaken with the Health Service Executive (HSE).

All consumers on the Abbeyfeale Public Water Supply can now resume normal use of the water supply for drinking, food preparation and brushing teeth.

The Boil Water Notice was issued as a precautionary measure on June 25 following issues identified with the treatment process at the treatment plant.

Irish Water’s Ian O’Mahony thanked consumers for their patience while they worked with Limerick City and County Council to lift the Boil Water Notice as quickly as it was safe to do so.
