Following advice from the Health Service Executive, Irish Water and Galway County Council have issued a Boil Water Notice for homes and businesses on both sides of Barrack Street in Loughrea town supplied by the Loughrea-Knockanima Public Water Supply. The notice was issued to protect consumers following a recent drinking water quality test.
The Boil Water Notice has been put in place following the detection of E. coli in the water supply to Barrack Street, Loughrea town.
Irish Water drinking water compliance and operational experts are working with colleagues in Galway County Council to resolve this situation as soon as possible. In the meantime, all customers on Barrack Street in Loughrea town are advised to boil water before use until further notice.
