An old cast iron pipe removed during watermain replacement works.
(Friday 23 October 2020) Irish Water is working in partnership with Louth County Council to carry out emergency hydrant repairs safeguarding the water supply for customers in Upper Old Hill, Barrack Street, Corrys Hill, Duleek Street, Drogheda and surrounding areas.
While this work is ongoing customers in these locations may experience low water pressure and/or outages for short periods today, Friday 23 October, until 6:00pm.
It may take 2-3 hours for normal water supply to return to all customers but it is important to continue to follow the HSE guidance on hand-washing.
Irish Water and Louth County Council understands the inconvenience caused when repair works occur and thanks customers for their patience while we complete these essential works and restore normal supply to impacted customers. Irish Water and Louth County Council regret any inconvenience caused.
