Irish Water performing essential works in Dundalk

Irish Water is working in partnership with Louth County Council to carry out essential leak repair work to protect the water supply to homes and businesses in Dundalk.

Jobs are scheduled for tomorrow, Tuesday, June 14, from 10 am to 6 pm.

To facilitate safe delivery of repairs, customers on Dublin Road (between Xerox Junction and Felda Junction), Dundalk and surrounding areas may experience temporary low pressure and/or lack of water during work.

Teams will make every effort to minimize disruption to affected customers and will work to complete these jobs as quickly and safely as possible. It typically takes two to three hours after the restore time for the mains to be replenished and normal water supply to fully return.

Vulnerable customers who have registered with Irish Water receive our direct communications for planned and unplanned outages lasting longer than four hours.

Speaking about the works, Michael Cunniffe, Head of Regional Asset Operations at Irish Water, said: “Irish Water understands that essential maintenance work can be inconvenient and working in partnership with our colleagues at Louth County Council, we will do all we can. efforts to minimize the disruption that these necessary works may cause.”

Michael added: “Customers may experience some temporary discoloration of the water after jobs and occasionally issues such as internal air chambers can arise.
