Interruption to water supply - Cavan Town

Irish Water is working with Cavan County Council to restore water as quickly as possible to impacted customers following a mechanical fault at Cavan Town Water Treatment Plant. 

Whilst every effort is being made to maintain supply customers may experience temporary, intermittent low pressure and/or water outages in Cavan Town.   

Dedicated water service crews have mobilised and repairs are underway and are expected to be completed by tonight. Typically, it takes two to three hours following repairs for normal supply to restore to all customers affected by an unplanned outage.

Peter Gallagher, Irish Water, commented: “The repairs are being conducted as quickly and efficiently as possible at Cavan Town Water Treatment Plant to minimise disruption to the area and restore water for all customers. We understand the inconvenience an outage can have on customers, and we appreciate your patience as we work to return normal water supply as quickly as possible.”

Vulnerable customers who have registered with Irish Water receive direct communications from us for planned and unplanned outages lasting more than four hours.

Irish Water understands the inconvenience when an outage occurs and thanks customers for their patience while we work to restore normal supply to impacted customers. The Irish Water customer care helpline is open 24/7 on 1800 278 278 and customers can also contact us on Twitter @IWCare with any queries.
