Boil Water Notice on the Horse and Jockey Public Water Supply lifted with immediate effect
Thursday, 22 December 2022- Irish Water and Tipperary County Council wishes to notify customers on the Horse and Jockey Public Water Supply that following the completion of remedial measures and the receipt of satisfactory monitoring results, the boil water notice issued on 3 September is now lifted with immediate effect. This decision follows consultation undertaken with the Health Service Executive.
The notice, arising out of increased turbidity in the raw water source impacting the treatment processes at the water treatment plant was put in place to protect the health of approximately 650 people in the Horse and Jockey, Forgestown, Moycarkey, Curraheen, Ballymurreen, Drumgower, Newtown and surrounding areas.
Irish Water operation and compliance experts worked with colleagues in Tipperary County Council to carry out the necessary works to enable the notice to be lifted as quickly as possible.
All consumers on the Horse and Jockey Public Water Supply can now resume normal use of the water supply for drinking, food preparation and brushing teeth.
Colin Cunningham of Irish Water said: “Irish Water and Tipperary County Council wish to thank everyone for their patience, co-operation and assistance during this boil water notice and we greatly regret any inconvenience caused to homes and businesses in the community.”
Irish Water and the Local Authority and the Health Service Executive Water Liaison Group will continue to meet and will review ongoing process control, monitoring and testing of the drinking water supply.
