Over 600,000 affected by boil water notice in Leinster

Irish Water has issued a boil water notice, the second in just two weeks, to over 600,000 homes across Dublin, Kildare and Meath.

Once again, customers supplied by Leixlip Water Treatment Plant are affected by the notice, which has been put in place due to turbidity (cloudy water due to suspended particles levels) caused by heavy rain, according to Irish Water.

Eamon Gallen, General Manager of Irish Water, expressed his regret at the news.

“Irish Water acknowledges and apologises for the impact and inconvenience caused by this Boil Water Notice to homes and businesses.”

“We are very disappointed that a Boil Water Notice has to be imposed again but as we outlined the last time, our number one priority is the public health and the safety and well-being of our customers.”
