Boil Water Notice lifted on Newport Public Water Supply

21 June 2024: Uisce Éireann wish to notify customers that the Boil Water Notice issued to customers supplied by the Newport Public Water Supply in Co Tipperary has been lifted with immediate effect.

The notice has been lifted following satisfactory sampling results. This decision follows consultation undertaken with the Health Service Executive (HSE).

The estimated 8,000 customers impacted by the Boil Water Notice to the Newport Public Water Supply, can now resume normal use of the public water supply.

The Boil Water Notice was issued in June 15 to protect the health of customers due to elevated levels of turbidity in the raw water supply which impacted the treatment process at the water treatment plant.
