A survey of water pipes is taking place in Killarney following recent lead contamination in water supplies in Galway and Mallow. At the monthly meeting of Killarney Town Council, Town Clerk Michael O’Leary said that no Killarney water supply has recorded unacceptable lead levels. However, he added that some areas do have lead piping. These pipes will be prioritised by risk and then replaced. Mr O’Leary said this was because no government funding was available for the works.
