Investigation under way into group water scheme slurry contamination

The contamination of some of the houses on the Nephin Valley Group Water Scheme (NVGWS) was brought up at Monday's meeting of Mayo County Council. The contamination first arose on Friday February 26. One resident who contacted the Mayo Advertiser said: "Basically on Friday, February 26, my mother noticed some dirty coloured water coming from the kitchen sink tap." She went on to say they contacted those charged with the management of the scheme and the next day "some operatives from NVGWS came to the house and witnessed the very dirty water with a smell of cattle slurry off it coming through our drinking water taps. At this stage the water had contaminated the dishwasher, internal heating system, and washing machines."
