Boil Water Notice impacting customers on Clare Island has been liftedwith immediate effect Following consultation with the Health Service Executive (HSE), Irish Water and Mayo County Council.
The island’s 165 customers can now resume normal use of the water supply for drinking, food preparation and brushing teeth.
The Boil Water Notice was issued on Sunday last, 11 September to protect the health of customer following issues with the disinfection process at Clare Island Water Treatment Plant.
Since then Irish Water’s drinking water compliance and operational experts worked with colleagues in Mayo County Council to resolve the situation as quickly as possible and following a number of satisfactory water samples the Boil Water Notice has been lifted.
Ger Greally, Irish Water’s Asset Operations Lead, acknowledged the impact of the notice on the community and thanked customers for their patience.
