Water disruptions hit two towns

Irish Water and Cavan County Council are advising that disruptions to the Ballyhaise Public Water Supply network will continue for at least another fortnight.

“Essential maintenance” started on the network on Monday last, June 24, and is expected to run until next month, July 8.
A statement issued on the Council’s website said that the Ballyhaise network is being flushed and chlorinated to remove any sediment build up and other deposits.
“Customers may notice a different taste and odour quality over current water quality. The HSE has advised that the water is safe to drink and can be used as normal for the duration of the works.”
Tankered water will also be available at The Square in Ballyhaise Village.

“As a precautionary measure, it is recommended that any members of the public who obtain water from these tankers boil the water before use,” the spokesperson added.
The works come off the back of an week-long boil water notice served on the Ballyhaise community in July last year.
The restriction was put in place to protect public health following a nitrite exceedance found in the water supply.

Belturbet disruption

Meanwhile, there will be disruption also to the water supply in the town of Belturbet, where the the local authority, working in partnership with Irish Water, is currently undertaking a programme of essential maintenance works at the town reservoir.
The works are expected to cause disruption to the public water supply in the Belturbet area from tomorrow, Wednesday (June 26) and last for almost a week, up to Monday, July 1.
“Elevated areas on the network” in the Erneside town’s environs may experience disruption into Tuesday, July 2, while water supplies replenish, it has been noted.
Again, water tankers will be made available at Centra Supermarket and the Ducking Stool.

Again, as a precautionary measure, the Council and Irish Water are recommending that any members of the public who obtain water from these tankers boil it before use.
“We apologise for any inconvenience caused and will endeavour to keep disruption to a minimum.”
