Breathnach calls for more updates from Irish Water during disruptions

-A Boil Water Notice has been in place in parts of Mid-Louth since July 30th –
Fianna Fáil TD Declan Breathnach has called on Irish Water to give more regular and informative updates to customers who contact them during disruptions.

“The Boil Water Notice for the Tallanstown Public Water Supply has been in place since July 30th. 8 days have passed and there is still no indication of when this will be lifted.”

“Irish Water directed people to ring their customer care line and visit their website for updates. Unfortunately, I along with many constituents, have been left disappointed by these services. The information on the website has not changed since the notice was put in place. The Irish Water customer care phone line has been unable to give any indication as to when the work may be completed.”

“People are being left in the dark with no end in sight to the disruption. Irish Water need to change their communication system, perhaps compiling a database of customers served by each supply, which can be given daily updates on work being carried out during disruptions.”
