Irish Water is reminding customers supplied by the Lough Talt Public Water supply scheme that the boil water notice remains in place until further notice.
The boil alert was issued two weeks ago, following the detection of cryptosporidium in the treated water coming from the plant.
A two-week testing and sampling programme is continuing, and once the results have been received and reviewed by all stakeholders involved, further action will be advised by the HSE.
In the meantime, customers are reminded to continue boiling water before consumption, including the washing of teeth, making of ice and preparing food that’s not cooked.
Areas affected by the boil water notice include the towns of Tubbercurry and Ballymote, as well as a number of Sligo villages and townlands, and the Mayo villages of Cloontia, Doocastle as well as for customers supplied by the Moylough Group Water Scheme in Mayo and the Ogham group water scheme in Co Sligo.
