Published: Mon Aug 04 2008

The notice was put in place last Friday following the serious flooding experienced by the West Limerick town as a result of torrential rainfall.

Extensive testing by the local authority’s Environmental Laboratory staff has shown that despite the recent flooding, the water being produced at the Newcastle West Water Treatment Plant continues to meet the drinking water standards.

According to Donal Brennan, A/Director of Services Transportation & Water Services, Limerick County Council, ‘The introduction of a boil notice was deemed a necessary precautionary measure to ensure that public health was not put at risk. Limerick County Council is delighted to be able to remove boil notice and would like to thank the public for their support.’
