Locals in Lettermore have had their Boil Water Notice Lifted two months after it was put in place
The Notice was first put in place on January 15 due to elevated turbidity levels in the water in the Teeranea/Lettermore public water supply.
Turbidity is a measure of how cloudy water is and is caused by large amounts of particles in the water.
The Notice was sent out to the locality over mechanical and operational difficulties at the local water treatment plant.
The Notice applied to people connected with the Lettermore public water supply and the Lettercallow Group Water Scheme.
Irish Water imposed the Notice after speaking to the HSE and the Galway County Council after working progress at the treatment plant.
Tim O’Connor of Irish Water acknowledged the “impact and inconvenience” caused by the notice and thanked locals for their patience and cooperation.
“The water treatment plant has been operating very well since the upgrade works were undertaken and the treated water is now of very high quality and fully compliant with E.U Drinking Water Regulations.”
“Irish Water’s priority is the provision of safe, clean drinking water and safeguarding that water supply for the future is a vital focus,” he added.
