Boil water notice in place following bogslide is lifted

28 Aug

The boil water notice in place since last Saturday has been lifted for the Lyrecrompane area. Residents were advised to boil tap water following a massive bogslide at Kielduff. Bridges were engulfed, roads blocked and access to houses was cut off by the slide which crept for up to four kilometers. In the aftermath of the devastating slide, the water supply of up to 25,000 residents was compromised. Since then, water supplies have been returned to users of the Dromin Resevoir, however Kerry County Council has had to seek an alternative water source for the remaining residents affected.
