Following the recent downpour of rain, the turbidity (relative clarity of a liquid) in the raw water extracted has increased. This increase in turbidity results in an increase in the amount of chlorine used and some members may experience a chlorine smell and/or a taste from the water. The chlorine levels in the water are
The Kiltiernan Group Water Scheme Board of Management would like to remind all our members the importance of water conservation and most particularly throughout this dry period. We are not currently at a stage where we need to apply water restrictions but we do appreciate all efforts our members make not to waste the water.
The water quality status is moving from advisory status to safe as our test results continue to indicate the water quality is safe. We invite any of our members to contact us with any concerns or questions they may have and while the scheme has made every effort to communicate the progress we have compiled
Happy to report the quality of the water across the network is looking good based on feedback I have received from test results within the network and color tests. We are going to leave the advisory notice in place for the moment and please be aware there may be minor water pressure disruptions as we
Michael John has started flushing the mains yesterday and will continue through next week. There may be a drop in water pressure in some areas during this activity. While our test result data on water leaving the treatment plant continues to be within parameters, our recommendation on boiling the water will remain in place until
The raw water quality within the treatment plant has returned to “normal “ values with the treated water color and turbidity low. This improvement is reflected in the increased UV Intensity and the stabilization in the chlorine usage at the treatment plant. The taste issues noted on the network are likely as a result of
We wish to remind our members that a reduction in water pressure may be experienced in some areas when the line is been scoured but we will endeavor to keep the disruption to a minimum. We continue to advise vulnerable users such as the elderly, very young, or those with a weak immune system to
Test results taken by both Glan Agua and the Kiltiernan Group water scheme are coming back and the results to date are very positive. We are still waiting on further test results and a scouring regiment to flush the line will be conducted over the next week. During this period we would continue to
