Repair works completed at Lough Mask Water Treatment plant 

Repair works have been completed at Lough Mask Water Treatment Plant and normal supply is returning to all customers on the Lough Mask Public Water Supply.

An electrical fault at the water treatment plant had impacted water production and some customers experienced discolouration, reduced water pressure or interruptions to their supply.

Dedicated crews worked tirelessly to ensure that the plant was operating as normal as quickly as possible with supply now returning to the following areas: Castlebar area including Breaffy, Turlough Road, Pontoon Road, Ballyheane; Belcarra, Balla, Mayo Abbey; Cong/Kilmaine; Ballinrobe, Kilmaine Road; Ballinlough, County Roscommon; Williamstown, County Galway and all Group Water Schemes connected to the public main in the above areas.

Padraig Philbin, Uisce Éireann said: “The majority of customers should have their water returned by now, however, it may take until tonight to fully restore to all areas as the water refills the network, especially for those on higher ground or at the end of the network. We understand the inconvenience an outage can have, and we appreciate everyone’s co-operation.”
