Further water disruption for Enfield customers

Irish Water is working in partnership with Meath County Council to carry out works to restore water supply in the Enfield area following a mechanical issue at the water treatment plant.

Crews are working to restore supply as quickly and as safely as possible. While works are ongoing customers in Enfield are likely to experience temporary disruption to their supply such as low water pressure and water outages. Water supply is expected to return in the early evening.

Further planned works are scheduled to take place tonight as new pumps at the plant are being commissioned. In order to carry out these commissioning works there will be a planned shut-down of the water treatment plant from 11pm tonight until 5am tomorrow morning. The new pumps will reduce the risk of future supply disruptions.

Speaking about the supply disruptions in Enfield, John Hand, Irish Water said, “Irish Water and Meath County Council understand the inconvenience recent supply disruptions have caused. Crews are onsite again today working to resolve the issue and we are continuing to work to minimise any further disruptions. We continually monitor the performance of the water network and undertake additional works as required to safeguard the local supply.”

Irish Water is working at this time, with our Local Authority partners, contractors and others to safeguard the health and well-being of both staff and the public and to ensure the continuity of critical drinking water and wastewater services.

Irish Water and Meath County Council regrets any inconvenience caused. Our customer care helpline is open 24/7 on 1800 278 278 and customers can also contact us on Twitter @IWCare with any queries. For updates please see the water supply and services section of our website.
