New water main to be installed in Lisnamult

Irish Water has confirmed that it will begin the installation of a new water main measuring half a kilometre in Lisnamult on the outskirts of Roscommon town in the coming days.

The new main is replacing long service connections and Irish Water says customers will enjoy improved water pressure when works are completed at the end of October.

“We are aware of the pressure issues for our customers in the Lisnamult area, and these works will ensure they have a much more reliable supply of water. Instances of bursts and water outages will be reduced, and these new pipes will also put an end to the loss of clean drinking water into the ground,” Irish Water’s Networks Regional Lead Declan Cawley said this week.

The section of works will take place along the L70524 and stop/go signals will be in place. However, Irish Water says areas of work will be limited to short sections to minimise impact on customers. 48 hours’ notice will also be issued ahead of any short-term interruptions.

“Working with Roscommon County Council, we prioritise works in the areas that need it most. Our customers in Lisnamult will see the benefits of replacing these old pipes first-hand. We understand that this type of work can be inconvenient for local residents, and we thank the community for their continued co-operation and patience,” Mr. Cawley added.

“Customers with questions about the project can call Irish Water on 1800-278278 or contact us on Twitter @IWCare. For further updates please see the Irish Water website, water.ie”.
