Pallasgreen boil water notice lifted

A water boil notice issued to residents in Pallasgreen and its surrounding areas has been lifted, the Limerick County Council said Thursday. The notice had been in place since last Friday after concerns about the discovery of E.Coli in the water supply in the area.

Testing by the local authority's Environmental Laboratory staff has since shown that the water being supplied to the Pallasgreen Water Supply Scheme is now meeting the drinking water standards.

Director of Services Transportation & Water Services at Limerick County Council Paul Crowe said in a statement today,

“The introduction of a boil notice was deemed a necessary precautionary measure to ensure that public health was not put at risk. Limerick County Council will continue to monitor the water supply to ensure compliance with water quality standards. The Council would like to thank the public for their support.”
Just yesterday a water notice issued for the Rockhill area of was also lifted meaning no drinking water alerts are now in effect in the county.
