Irish Water and Cork City Council are aware of an increase in reports of discoloured water and water quality issues in some areas of Cork City.
Investigations are being carried out in the affected areas to identify the source of these water issues and immediate remedial actions are being taken as necessary.
Water leaving water treatment plants is continuously tested to ensure it meets drinking water standards. Water is regularly tested at customer delivery points to ensure the highest standards are met.
If water from your kitchen tap looks orange or brown, Irish Water and Cork City Council recommend running the kitchen tap for a few minutes to see if the water returns to a clear colour. If the water does not run clear, contact Irish Water Customer Care Team 24/7 on 1800 278 278 and it will be investigated. Do not drink discoloured water.
