Roscommon County Council has advised households and businesses served by the Boyle and Boyle/Ardcarne Regional Water Supply Scheme to boil water before use until further notice. The areas affected include Killaraght, Rockingham, Knockvicar, Cootehall, Tarmon Road, Kiltycreighton, Crossna, Derrycashel, Moigh, Carrigeenroe, Battlebridge and Ardcarne.
It is essential that people in the affected areas boil any water intended for drinking or food preparation. If you are unsure of the source of your water supply, you should boil your water as a precautionary measure.
Un-boiled water can be used for personal hygiene, bathing and flushing of toilets but not for brushing teeth or gargling.
People are reminded not to drink tap water unless boiled. The ‘Boil Water Notice’ will be lifted when the water supply is considered to be safe.
