The Boil Water Notice for Knock Airport Public Water Supply has been lifted with immediate effect
Following consultation with the Health Service Executive, Irish Water and Mayo County Council are pleased to confirm that the Boil Water Notice for the area supplied by the Knock Airport Public Water Supply (PWS) has been lifted. This also affects Cloonlyon Group Water Scheme along with Knock Airport, Cloonlyon National School and approximately 15 households.
The Boil Water Notice was put in place on October 17th last, following the detection of cryptosporidium in the Knock Airport Public Water Supply.
The water treatment plant for this area did not have a cryptosporidium barrier in place which resulted in the issuing of the Boil Water Notice when detected. However Irish Water has been able to install a twin UV reactor and filtration system from the recently decommissioned Kilconnell Public Water Supply in Co Galway to the Knock Airport PWS. This has provided the cryptosporidium barrier for the Knock Airport PWS.
