More flushing works are to get underway tomorrow as Uisce Eireann continue to improve water quality and supply in Cork City

The work is being conducted in an effort to address intermittent discolouration issues impacting a number of customers

Listeners are reminded that flushing works initially result in increased discolouration locally as the water is used to remove sediment from the network at hydrants.

The flushing time required for the water to run clear is dependent on the local network conditions.

From tomorrow, Wednesday 29 November, network flushing will be undertaken for approximately two weeks and will work through Corrib Lawn, Boyne Crescent, Ballinderry Park, Annalee Grove, Gweendore Avenue, Glencree Crescent, Liffey Park, Shannon Lawn, Lagan Grove, Murmount Court, Murmount Grove, Avonmore Park, Glenamoy Lawn, Spring Vale and Old Youghal Road and surrounding areas

In the short term, Uisce Éireann continues with works to proactively flush the network in targeted areas across Cork City where reports of discolouration have been received. Areas are prioritised based on customer feedback and reports received by our customer care team. This involves isolating small sections of the network and flushing them of any dislodged sediment.
