Dublin water restrictions still in place to 'protect public health'

And read why one local resident in the Clontarf area is hoping for a particularly speedy resolution…

DUBLIN CITY COUNCIL is advising residents in the Clontarf area who are served by the St Lawrence District Meter Area that test results due from water samples today will determine what further measures need to be taken.

A boil notice remains in place for residents from the Howth Road to Castle Avenue and from the Howth Road at Collins Avenue to Clontarf Road. Unboiled water can be used for bathing, washing dishes and laundry.

The council has said that investigative work is focused on Castle Avenue, Stiles Road, Hadden Road and Victoria Avenue.

Valves have been replaced in the local distribution network at Castle Avenue. The results of water samples taken yesterday morning are due today. Tests carried out on adjacent water supply zones have confirmed that the problem is confined to St. Lawrence’s DMA.

One local resident, Dimitri Perrin, is hoping the situation is resolved soon:
