Date: 11th March 2020


Following consultation with the HSE, consumers of the Gowran-Abbeygrove Development Small Private Supply are notified that water on this scheme is not suitable for consumption by babies under age of six months. This is due to elevated levels of nitrates in the water supply.

How long before I can use tap water normally again ?
We do not know at present, but Kilkenny County Council; will continue to liaise with the Helath Service Executive with a view to lifting the drinking water restrictions as soon as practicable.

How will we keep you informed ?
