A boil notice in place in Co Limerick has been lifted by Limerick County Council.
The local authority confirmed this afternoon that following water quality monitoring, consultation with and advice from the Health Service Executive, it is now in a position to remove a boil water notice affecting customers served by the Abbeyfeale Public Water Supply. The notice has been in place since 21 December 2010.
Areas supplied by the Abbeyfeale Water Scheme include Abbeyfeale Town, Caher, Templeglantine, Rathcahill, Tournafulla, Mountmahon, Knocknasna, Ballagh, Cratloe, Coolwest, Parkanna, Templeathea, Athea Village and Direen.
Mr. Paul Crowe, Director of Services, Limerick County Council said: “Everyone can now resume normal use of the water supply, including for drinking, food preparation and brushing teeth. The Local Authority / Health Service Executive Water Liaison Group will continue monitoring drinking water supplies.”
Mr. Crowe added: “Limerick County Council acknowledges the patience, cooperation and assistance of the general public during the period of the boil water notice and greatly regrets any inconvenience caused to householders and the business community.”
Two separate boil notices affecting Kilmallock and Newcastle West were lifted earlier this week. There are now no boil notices in effect in County Limerick.
