Uisce Eireann Issue Do Not Consume Notice For Residents In Elisnore, Delgany

The notice affects 17 properties in the area.

Uisce Éireann would like to reassure customers that the notice is contained to a section of the public network supplying 17 properties in Elsinore, Delgany and does not impact the wider public supply area. 

Impacted customers have been contacted directly by letter drop. A map of the affected area is attached and available to view on the Supply and Service Section of water.ie.

It is especially important that mains drinking water is not given to bottle fed infants.

Please note this is not a Boil Water Notice. Boiling the water will not reduce iron levels and is therefore not a suitable measure to make the water safe to consume. 

Uisce Éireann drinking water compliance and operational experts are working with colleagues in Wicklow County Council to resolve this situation as soon as possible. 

This water should not be used for

  • Drinking
  • Drinks made with water
  • Food preparation, washing or cooking of food,
  • Brushing of teeth
  • Making of ice
  • Children under 12 months old should not drink this water
  • In particular, children under 12 months old should not drink this water. This water should not be used for making up infant formula for bottled fed infants. An alternative source of water should be used. Bottled water can also be used to make up infant formula. All bottled water, with the exception of natural mineral water, is regulated to the same standard as drinking water. It is best not to use bottled water labelled as ‘Natural Mineral Water’ as it can have high levels of sodium (salt) and other minerals, although it rarely does. ‘Natural Mineral Water’ can be used if no other water is available, for as short a time as possible, as it is important to keep babies hydrated.
  • If bottled water is used to make up infant formula it should be boiled once (rolling boil for 1 minute), and cooled in the normal way
  • Ready-to-use formula that does not need added water can also be used.
  • Domestic water filters will not render water safe to drink
  • Caution should be taken when bathing infants to ensure that they do not swallow the bathing water
  • Discard ice cubes in fridges and freezers and filtered water in fridges
