EPA Cant Rule Out Future Boil Water Notices For Greater Dublin Area

The Environmental Protection Agency says further boil notices will be put in place if the Leixlip water treatment plant doesn't maintain safety levels.

In its latest audit of the plant, the EPA has instructed Irish Water to undertake daily monitoring of parasites in the treated water until filter upgrade works are complete.

Over 600 thousand people were affected by the boil notice for 8 days in parts of Dublin, Kildare and Meath.

The latest notice was as a result of high levels of cloudiness in the water meaning there was a risk of bugs in the supply.
