Irish Water has announced where water tankers will be located following contamination of Fethard supply
Irish Water has announced the locations of water tankers that will supply residents on the contaminated Fethard water supply scheme.
The tankers are available in the following locations:
Asses Turn Mullinahone
Kilvemnon National School
In a statement, Irish Water said that they would make every effort to ensure that the alternative drinking water supply provided, including the tanker / bowser, and dispensing tap, are adequately disinfected.
However, as it is not practical to provide sterilised containers for the public to transport drinking water from the tanker to their homes, we cannot guarantee that any containers used by the public do not negatively impact or contaminate the drinking water, the agency said.
Irish Water is advising, as a precautionary measure, that any members of the public who obtain water from a tanker or bowser boil the water before use.
