Important news for those in the area.
2,500 Cork homes will be affected between Wednesday night and Thursday morning as Irish Water work to repair a major leak in the Togher area.
According to the organisation, the outage should be expected between 10pm Wednesday, December 1st until 5am the next morning — though it may also take three hours for the water to return once work is complete.
Homes between the south of Pearse Road to the South Ring Road can expect to be affected by the stoppage.
Steven Blennerhassett of Irish Water said: “During these essential works, homes and businesses in the area will be impacted from around 10pm on Wednesday for about 7 hours. Following the completion of improvement works, water supply may take 2-3 hours to return as water refills the network.”
In a statement issued yesterday, Irish Water said: “Irish Water understands the inconvenience when a planned outage occurs and thanks customers for their patience while we complete these essential works. The repair works are being carried out as part of our ‘Find and Fix’ scheme.”
