Councillor Damian O’Reilly has received the following notification regarding a do not consume notice issued by Irish Water  over a month ago in Batterstown.

He told Meath Live, ‘I have received an update advising that Irish Water and Meath County Council would like to remind customers supplied by Batterstown Public Water Scheme that the Do Not Consume Notice issued on Thursday 16 September remains in place until further notice.

‘The Do Not Consume Notice was placed as a precaution to protect approximately 96 customers as a result of a Bromate exceedance in the water supply. Irish Water would like to reassure customers that we are working closely with Meath County Council and the HSE to lift the notice as quickly and as safely as possible and will continue to keep local residents, media and elected representatives updated.

‘Updates are being issued via press release to all local media outlets and elected representatives. The press release information is uploaded to the News section on the Irish water website and is also shared via customer care social media channels. The website now has a new location feature which allows customers to immediately see what works and projects are ongoing in their locality by setting their location at and visiting the Supply and Service Updates page.

‘Irish Water is responsible for the delivery of all public water and wastewater services in Ireland. We are committed to continuously upgrading and developing critical infrastructure to support the growth needed in housing and across our economy, while protecting the environment and safeguarding water supplies’.
