Emergency Water Notices – 15th January – 12.00noon

All areas in Co. Meath may experience intermittent disruption and localized problems over the coming days.
Meath Local Authorities’ overall strategy is to increase water levels in our reservoirs and there has been some recovery in the past 48 hours.

Slane area has water but low pressure in, Painstown and Beauparc. Detection of leaks underway in order to reduce demand. People are requested to report leaks, and check any agricultural connections.
2 Tankers of water available at Yellow Furze Church.

Dunshaughlin and surrounding areas – Supply restored to all areas but low pressure in some areas.

Ratoath and surrounding areas - Water in all areas but low pressure may be experienced.

Ashbourne and surrounding areas - Most areas should have a normal water supply but low pressure may be experienced in higher areas i.e. Race Hill, as system recovers.

Navan and surrounding areas – Pressure restriction was lifted this morning and supply restored to all outlying areas.
Due to a mechanical failure at the Kilcarn Water Treatment Plant this morning the following areas were without water:
Johnstown, Oakleigh, Kilcarn Court, Swan Lane, Athlumney Abbey, Athlumney Wood, Johnstown Shopping Centre, Carn Hill, Millbrook, Cill Foireann, Spire View, Johnstown Wood, Bailis Manor, Athlumney Hall, Chestnut Court, Johnstown Village, Springfield Glen, Limekiln Wood, Old Balreask Wood.
Supply will be restored by late morning.

No water in Robinstown due to the presence of air locks in the system – work ongoing to resolve this problem. Water Tankers available at Robinstown Church.

Please note that the public water supply in Navan Town & Area shall experience low water pressure from 9pm tonight Friday 15th January 2010 until 6am the following morning, Saturday 16th January 2010.


We would once again appeal to all members of the public to conserve water, check all water supplies for evidence of leaks and where appropriate arrange for any necessary repairs to be carried out immediately.
