Irish Water has confirmed that a number of areas have been removed from the Lough Talt boil water notice, which was put in place in February, following the detection of cryptosporidium.
Bellaghy customers are now receiving a clean water supply from Charlestown and no longer need to boil water before consumption.
This is good news for some 785 customers in the Bellaghy area.
A number of other areas in Co Sligo have also been removed from the boil water notice – including Sandyhill, Cloonaughill, Cully, the southern 80% part of Bunnacrannagh, Brackloonagh, Brogher, Lissard, and Curryfuel.
Irish Water will telephone or write to the customers in the Bunnacrannagh area who are being removed from the Boil Water Notice and customers who reside in this area are advised to keep boiling water before consumption until they receive either a call or letter from Irish Water.
However, customers in the towns of Tubbercurry and Ballymote and a large rural hinterland are still being urged to boil water before use.
This boil notice also includes customers supplied by the Ogham Group Water Scheme (GWS) in Co Sligo and the following areas in Co Mayo: Cloontia, Doocastle, and the Moylough GWS.
