A Boil Water Notice Has Been Issued For The Area Supplied By The Whitegate Public Water Supply

It's to protect approximately 9,500 people following a recent drinking water quality test.

The Boil Water Notice has been put in place from the Health Service Executive, Irish Water and Cork County Council as a precautionary measure due an issue with the filtration process at the plant.

Irish Water and Cork County Council are working to resolve this situation as soon as possible.

However in the meantime, residents in the Whitegate area are being advised to boil water for drinking, preparing food, brushing their teeth, and making ice.
