“Do not consume” notice for Barraghy/Farmoyle GWS

Cavan County Council has issued a “do not consume” notice for the Barraghy/Farmoyle group water supply scheme. Following consultation with the Health Service Executive the local authority issued the notice with immediate effect to protect the health of all consumers of water supplied by the Barraghy/Farmoyle scheme.

The notice states that boiling the water will not render it safe to drink.

They ask consumers supplied by the scheme to use an alternative safe source of water for; drinking, preparing drinks made with water, cooking food, food preparation including washing and preparation of salads and similar foods, which are not cooked prior to eating, brushing of teeth and/or gargling, and making ice.

An alternative supply is being provided from a tanker in Niall Dempsey’s Yard (Eircode - H18 E640). The local authority point out that water from the hot tap of kitchen or bathroom sinks is not safe to drink.
