Tipp Town boiling water notice lifted

KILDARE OPINION: How many times must I boil the kettle to get a €1,200 ESB bill?

Boiling the kettle

Thursday, 23 December 2021 - Irish Water, working in partnership with Tipperary County Council wishes to notify customers on the Tipperary Town Public Water Supply (Cordangan Water Treatment Plant) that following the completion of remedial measures and the receipt of satisfactory monitoring results, the boil water notice issued on 10 December is now lifted with immediate effect. This decision follows consultation undertaken with the Health Service Executive (HSE).  

The notice was originally issued as a precaution due to elevated turbidity in the water supply which impacted the disinfection process. Irish Water operation and compliance experts worked with colleagues in Tipperary County Council to carry out the necessary works to enable the notice to be lifted as quickly as possible.

All consumers on the Tipperary Town Public Water Supply can now resume normal use of the water supply for drinking, food preparation and brushing teeth.

Pat Duggan of Irish Water said: “ We are delighted that we could lift the Boil Water Notice in time for Christmas. I would like to thank everyone for their patience and assistance, and on behalf of everyone in Irish Water, wish you all a safe and happy Christmas.” 

Irish Water and the Local Authority and the Health Service Executive Water Liaison Group will continue to meet and will review ongoing process control, monitoring and testing of the drinking water supply.

The Irish Water Customer Contact Centre (1800 278 278) is available to answer customer queries in relation to this water notice. Further information is available on

Irish Water and Tipperary County Council acknowledge the patience, cooperation and assistance of the general public during the period of the boil water notice and greatly regrets any inconvenience caused to householders and the business community.
