Boil Water Notice lifted on Cranford Public Water Supply and Downings

A Boil Water Notice on the Cranford Public Water Supply and Cranford, Carrigart and Downings areas has been lifted with immediate effect.

Uisce Éireann can confirm that, following consultation with the Health Service Executive, customers can now resume normal use of the public water supply.

The notice was issued due to disinfection process issues at Cranford Water Treatment Plant.


The areas affected included customers in Cranford (The Bogue) no. 2 Group Water Scheme (GWS), Carrick Upper GWS, Isle of Roy GWS, the Rosguill Peninsula including Grainne Hill, Dooey, Dundoan, Crocknamuirleog, Derryhasson GWS and surrounding areas.

Drinking water experts from Uisce Éireann worked to lift the notice as quickly and safely as possible.

Following satisfactory water samples, the Boil Water Notice has been lifted.

Uisce Eireann acknowledges the impact of the notice on customers and thanks the community for their support while the notice was in place.

Uisce Éireann’s primary focus remains the protection of public health and we worked with our stakeholders to lift the notice as quickly as possible. We are grateful to customers, elected representatives and the media for their assistance in sharing information on the Boil Water Notice.
