The Council replied that Irish Water is now the Water Services Authority and it is their responsibility to ensure that public water supplies are maintained and that the water quality meets the requirements set out in the Regulations.

The Council added: “ We understand from them that there is currently adequate storage to maintain supplies, however it is important that the wastage of water is minimised and water is conserved as much as possible.Irish Water will soon be launching a new facility on their website the give their customers details of water quality test results in their area.

“Historically these results have been published on the SDCC website, however this will cease once Irish Water commence publishing the results from June 15 2017”.
