Following reports from residents about unusual taste of the tap water in recent days the residents association contact Irish Water. We have received the following update about the Dún Laoghaire–Rathdown supply:
“Following a major supply interruption last Friday 9th September, Irish Water is aware of taste/odour issues affecting Dun-Laoighre Rathdown and North Wicklow areas as the as the network returns to normal. The taste and odour issues experienced are likely caused by the complete emptying of some reservoirs and distribution supply pipes which could have disturbed internal deposits on concrete structures, pipes and fittings. This will return to normal as water flows through the network over time.
Irish Water have carried out investigative sampling and testing confirming the water supplied fully meets regulatory parameters under the drinking water regulations.
Areas impacted from the previous incident are: Newcastle, Newtownmountkennedy, Kilcoole, Kilpedder, Kilmacanogue, Fassaroe/Berryfield Lane, Kilcroney, Delgany, Killiskey, Nuns Cross, Coynes Cross, Prospect, Mount John, Timmore Lane, Dunran, Ballyvolan and Kiltimon, North Bray, Palermo, Fassaroe and surrounding areas in Co. Wicklow; and North Bray/ Ballyman in Dún Laoghaire–Rathdown”
