Uisce Éireann working on Castlerea Public Water Supply following mechanical issues

Castlerea customers urged to conserve water

Uisce Éireann is working to maintain normal water supply to homes and businesses served by the Castlerea Public Water Supply Scheme.

This is following mechanical issues at the Longford Springs Water Treatment Plant over the last 48 hours.

As a result, water production at the treatment plant is significantly impacted leading to reservoirs running low across the scheme.

Repair crews are at the treatment plant working to restore normal water supply as quickly as possible to avoid outages to customers.

In the meantime, customers in Castlerea town and surrounding areas including Ballintubber, Trien, Kilmurray and Castleplunkett may experience reduced water pressure and/or water outages over the course of the day.

Ger Greally, Operations Lead for Uisce Éireann, said: “We understand the inconvenience this issue is causing and are working to restore normal water supply as quickly as possible.”
