Irish Water is working in partnership with Galway County Council to safeguard the water supply for homes and businesses supplied by Tuam Regional Water Supply Scheme in Co Galway.
Essential water mains rehabilitation works are ongoing and are expected to be completed by 10pm tonight. During the works, customers in Kilconly West, Ballyfruit, Garraun, Logawannia, Annaghdown, Corrandulla and surrounding areas may experience temporary, intermittent low pressure and/or water outages.
Typically, it takes two to three hours following restoration time for normal supply to be fully restored to all areas.
Customers are advised that they may experience some temporary discolouration of water following the works and occasionally issues such as internal airlocks may arise. For advice on clearing discoloration and airlocks, visit www.water.ie/water-supply/supply-issues/following-an-outage.”
Irish Water say traffic management is in place to facilitate the works. However, local and emergency traffic will be maintained at all times.
The Irish Water customer care helpline is open 24/7 on 1800 278 278 and customers can also contact the utility company on Twitter @IWCare with any queries.
