Work will begin in Roscommon Town next week to remove old lead pipes from the public water network, in order to provide a safer and more reliable water supply to the town.
The work will get underway next Tuesday 3rd April, and will involve removing lead service connections along Castle Street and the Square in Roscommon Town.
The old lead pipes, which are prone to leakage, will be replaced by modern plastic pipes.
The work will be carried out by Roscommon County Council on behalf of Irish water and will take about eight weeks to complete.
This may involve some short-term water shut offs, and Irish Water says the project team will ensure customers are given 48 hours prior notice to any planned water shut-offs.
Temporary traffic management arrangements will also be put in place during the works.
