A burst has occurred on a water main which may cause supply disruptions to customers in Ratoath, Fairyhouse Road, Kilbride, Curragha, Kilbrew and surrounding areas in Co. Meath.
Irish Water and Meath County Council are working to repair the burst as quickly as possible. A repair crew is on site, however the repair is proving more complex due to a full pipe length replacement and difficult ground conditions hampered by groundwater ingress from the recent heavy rainfall. The repair is now expected to be completed at approximately 10pm tonight. Once the repair is completed the reservoir can replenish overnight and water supplies should be restored for impacted customers tomorrow morning at approximately 7am.
A traffic management system will be in place for the duration of the works.
Irish Water understands the inconvenience when a burst occurs and thanks customers for their patience while we work to repair the burst and restore supply to impacted customers. Irish Water and Meath County Council regrets any inconvenience caused. The customer care helpline is open 24/7 on 1850 278 278 and customers can also contact Twitter @IWCare with any queries.
*The scheduled maintenance works that would have caused a disruption to Water Supply in Ratoath and surrounding areas from 10pm tonight, Wednesday 7 November until 6am tomorrow morning, Thursday 8 November have now been postponed.
