Irish Water would like to advise customers that essential upgrade works are scheduled to take place at Staleen Water Treatment Plant from 9am until 5pm on Tuesday 12 November.
During these essential works the water supply to homes and businesses in South Louth and East Meath will be dependent on storage in the reservoirs.
The storage available in the reservoirs should be adequate to maintain water supply for the majority of customers for the duration of the necessary works.
However, customers in Donore and surrounding areas may experience disruption such as low water pressure, water outages and water discoloration between 10am and 4pm.

Irish Water is working closely with Louth and Meath County Councils to minimize any potential impact on customers.
Works to upgrade the Staleen Water Treatment Plant have been ongoing since September 2017 and are scheduled to be completed in Q4 2019. The upgraded water treatment plant will ensure that the water supply is removed from the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Remedial Action List (RAL) and will safeguard the water supply to homes and businesses served by the plant.
Irish Water would like to advise customers that as the upgrade works are nearing completion there will be further instances, when the production capacity at the plant may be reduced to accommodate these essential works.
Irish Water will provide notice in advance of any potential supply interruption associated with these upgrade works. Notice will be provided to all Louth and Meath media outlets and issued to elected representatives. Information will also be provided via www.water.ie and Irish Water’s social media channels.
