Upgrade Works To Take Place On Water Supplies For Residents In Bray

Wicklow Sinn Féin TD John Brady has welcomed the response from Irish Water following his representations on behalf of residents in the Hawthorns, Ballinahinch Wood, Ashford in the county, due to the degradation of water quality in the area.

Such was the extent of the water discolouration caused by the degradation, which was a result of a length of aged 300 mm cast iron pipe rusting into the water supply, that it was causing damage to appliances belonging to residents.

Irish Water have given a commitment to replace the affected pipe, but claim that this is pending availability of funding and the prioritisation of other emerging needs across County Wicklow.
