Boil water notice issued for general Barna area

Fri, Sep 24, 2021

Map of area affected by boil water notice decision.

Following consultation with the Health Service Executive, Irish Water and Galway City Council are issuing a Boil Water Notice with immediate effect to protect the health of consumers supplied by the Galway City West Public Water Supply in the areas of Barna Village, Truskey West and Truskey East, Barr Aille, Fermoyle, Ballard and along the Connemara Coast Road as far as Furbo, and on the Barna/Galway Road as far as Silverstrand.

The Boil Water Notice has been put in place due to issues with disinfection of the water at Tonabruckey Reservoir. The notice affects approximately 2,300 people supplied by the Barna section of the Galway City West Public Water Supply area.

Experts from Irish Water and Galway City Council are working to assess the situation and are investigating the issues at the Disinfection Boosting Station at the Reservoir with a view to implementing solutions to lift the notice as quickly and as safely as possible. In the meantime, all customers on this supply are advised to boil their water before use until further notice. Customers in the area served by Tonabrucky Reservoir will notice increased levels of chlorine in their water supply in the coming days as we work to resolve the issue.
