Irish Water have issued a Boil Water Notice for parts of Wicklow and South Dublin in order to ensure the safety of the drinking water supply in these areas. The notice is the result of a failure of mechanical equipment at Vartry Water Treatment Plant required for the addition of chlorine to drinking water.
Drinking water testing and sampling is underway in the affected areas to ensure the water is safe to drink. A full list of the areas affected is available on the Irish Water Website.
The Boil Water Notice requires that water intended for consumption is brought to the boil and boiled for a minimum of 30 seconds in a kettle or saucepan. It should be left to cool and sored covered in a fridge. This also applies to water suitable for food preparation, brushing teeth and making ice.
