Do Not Consume Notice for Mountainlodge GWS

Do Not Consume Notice for Mountainlodge GWS

Following consultation with the Health Service Executive, Cavan County Council has issued a ‘Do not Consume’ notice, effective from 11th October 2021 to protect the health of all consumers of water supplied by the Mountainlodge Group Water Supply Scheme.

Published on: 11 Oct 2021

Water consumers should note that boiling your water will not render it safe to drink.

Please use an alternative safe source of drinking water (e.g. bottled water) for the following:

  • Drinking
  • Preparing drinks made with water
  • Cooking of food.
  • Food preparation including washing and preparation of salads and similar foods, which are not cooked prior to eating
  • Brushing of teeth and/or gargling
  • Making of ice. However, ensure you first discard all existing ice cubes in fridges and freezers and filtered water in fridges

An alternative supply is being provided from tankers at Laragh National School and Tunnyduff National School. Remember to boil this water from the tanker before use for drinking or for food preparation. Please pass this information to your neighbours and friends.

It is important to also note that water from the hot tap of kitchen or bathroom sinks is not safe to drink.

Remember – do not use your tap water for drinking or food preparation until further notice.
