Irish Water say they can’t rule out further mass boil water notices


Irish Water cannot rule out further repeats of large-scale boil water notices, managing director Niall Gleeson has said.

A boil water notice, issued on Monday, is currently in place in for areas of Dublin, Meath and Kildare.

It impacts 600,000 people supplied by the Leixlip Water Treatment Plant.

In a statement yesterday evening, Irish Water said that the boil water notice remains in place and that the Environmental Protection Agency will carry out an audit of the Leixlip plant today.
