Water disruption due this evening for several areas in Cork city

During these essential works, homes and businesses will experience water outage disruption.

RESIDENTS of the northern part of Cork city are being advised that the water supply will be disrupted from this evening until about 6am on Friday.

The disruptions are due to works that form part of vital underground network improvements being delivered to facilitate housing in the area, and to support social and economic development.

During these essential works, homes and businesses will experience water outage disruption.

Following the completion and due to the extent of works water supply may take five to six hours to return as significant amount of water refills the network.

Irish Water said that work crews will endeavour to complete these essential works ahead of time to expedite the return of supply to the affected areas.

They advised that when network improvement works and outages of this scale take place and once water has been restored it is not unusual for customers to experience cloudy or discoloured water in their supply, if this happens, and customers must slowly run their kitchen cold water tap until the water clears.

Do not use your washing machine, dishwasher, shower, or any similar appliance until the water clears.

Irish Water said: "To facilitate the safe delivery of the works there is a need implement temporary traffic management and to operate under a local road closure.

"The road closure granted by Cork City Council will be in place until works are completed. During a planned road closure, local and emergency access will always be maintained. Diversion routes will be in place and clearly sign posted.

"Irish Water understands this type of work can be inconvenient and will ensure our work crews make every effort to minimise any disruption these works may cause.

"Customers can call the Irish Water customer helpline on 1800 278 278 for any questions in relation to the works."
