The Sanitary Authority is advising members of the public that due to the presence of high nitrates, the water should not be used until further notice, except for flushing toilets and internal house plumbing.

The Authority is also asking the public to ensure that ice-cubes in fridges and freezers are discarded.

A Limerick County Council spokesperson this evening stated, ‘Rockhill is a small scheme serving approximately 340 persons and some 153 domestic and non-domestic connections. Limerick County Council’s Environment Laboratory are continuing to investigate.’

‘The Council wishes to thank the public for their support to date. A further update will be issued to the public and media in due course’, added the spokesperson.

The areas affected by the public water notice are Ballyteige Upper, Ballyfookeen, Howardstown North, Cappanafaraha, Ballywillin, Ballyclough Upper, Ballyinoran, Garryfine, Knockaunavoddig, Garrane, Ballynoe, Mounteagle and Lotteragh Upper.

Further information and advice is available from 061-496326 (9.30am–4.30pm Monday-Friday) or 061-419226 (after hours).
