ABOUT 1,400 PROPERTIES in north Dublin have been issued with a warning not to drink or cook with their current water supply.

Businesses and households have been affected by the supply disruption since it was announced last night.

The advice, given by the Dublin City Council in conjunction with the Health Service Executive, came after a non-compliant water sample.

The impacted areas include those properties located between the Howth Road to Castle Avenue and from the Howth Road at Collins Avenue to Clontarf Road.

DCC said it will continue to carry out remedial works and sample the water supply in order to resolve the issue as soon as possible. Water tankers have already been deployed to the areas and can be found at Castle Avenue at Kincora Avenue and St Lawrence Road at the Howth Road.

The council has apologised to its clients for the inconvenience caused and thanked them for their patience and cooperation.
