Do Not Consume Notice issued for all customers supplied by Robert’s Cove Public Water Supply Scheme

Irish Water have issued a Do Not Consume Notice for all customers on the Robert’s Cove Public Water Supply Scheme.

The supply scheme has seen issues with treatment and distribution processes which are currently under investigation.

The notice will affect around 65 customers who are being reminded not to use water for drinking, food preparation, ice making, teeth brushing, and when making baby bottles.

The water can be used for personal hygiene, flushing toilets, laundry and dish washing.

Tankered water will be in place across from the beach at Robert’s Cove to provide an alternative water supply to customers. Customers are reminded to use their own containers when taking water from the tanker and to boil water before consumption as a precautionary measure.

Speaking about the imposition of the notice, Niall O’Riordan, Regional Operations Lead with Irish Water said “Irish Water is aware of the impact a Do Not Consume Notice is having on the community of Robert’s Cove and would like to reassure impacted customers that we are working hard to lift the notice as quickly and as safely as possible. We would ask customers who have concerns to contact our customer care team on 1800 278 278.”
