Do Not Consume Notice issued for Kiltegan Water Supply Scheme

The Health Service Executive has issued a warning for 269 customers in Wicklow not to drink from their water supply.

The HSE, Irish Water and Wicklow County Council have issued a Do Not Consume Notice for all users on the Kiltegan Water Supply Scheme — this is due to elevated levels of nitrate in the water supply.

The notice emphasises not to use mains water supply for bottle fed infants.

Warning that this is not a Boil Water Notice as boiling the water will not be sufficient to make the water fit for consumption.

A water tanker will be in place outside Katie Lowes Pub from 3pm this afternoon to provide an alternative water supply to customers.

Customers are reminded to use their own containers when taking water from the tankers and to boil water before consumption as a precautionary measure.
