Fethard water update: Irish Water reveal tanker locations

Fethard water update: Irish Water reveal tanker locations

Irish Water has announced where water tankers will be located following contamination of Fethard supply

Irish Water has announced the locations of water tankers that will supply residents on the contaminated Fethard water supply scheme.

The tankers are available in the following locations: 

Gortnahoe

Ballysloe 

Glengoole

Ballynonty 

Ballinure 

Killenaule 

Moyglass

Cloneen 

Drangan 

Asses Turn Mullinahone

Poulacapple Junction 

Poulacapple School 

Kilvemnon National School

In a statement, Irish Water said that they would make every effort to ensure that the alternative drinking water supply provided, including the tanker / bowser, and dispensing tap, are adequately disinfected.

However, as it is not practical to provide sterilised containers for the public to transport drinking water from the tanker to their homes, we cannot guarantee that any containers used by the public do not negatively impact or contaminate the drinking water, the agency said.

Irish Water is advising, as a precautionary measure, that any members of the public who obtain water from a tanker or bowser boil the water before use.
