Thurles Boil Water Notice Lifted After A Five Week Period.

The ‘Boil Water Notice’ issued on July 14th last, some five weeks ago, has today been lifted in Thurles and surrounding areas with immediate effect.
However, residents should be aware that contaminated water may still remain in water pipes and header storage tanks for a short period, as static water is being refreshed.

The news will be much welcomed by local residents, who have at great expense, been obliged to purchase water from local shops at a cost of €1.45 per 5 litre bottle, spending up to €5.80 per day over the past 35 day period.

No real explanation for the five week old ‘Boil Water Notice’ request has been forthcoming from the relevant Tipperary authorities and elected public representatives.
