Question 4 – Jan ’16 Waterworks

While canvassing I discovered constituents had issues with their tap water and this informed my second question at January’s Kildare-Newbridge Municipal District:

That the Council explain the reason for the discoloured water in Curragh Grange on the night of January 7th.

Report: Waterworks crew turned off the watermain last Thursday (7th January 2016) to carry out a new connection to a 10″ diameter cast iron down stream at Athgarvan and turned backĀ on the supply once the work was completed which caused disturbance to the sediments in the cast iron pipe.

Waterworks scoured/flushed the watermain and the issue was resolved
