Kildare County Council and Irish Water says they are working to restore water supply for residents in Leixlip

Plans to have water tankers available from 4pm today in Leixlip

Irish Water, in partnership with Kildare County Council, says they are  working to restore the water supply in the River Forest area of Leixlip and surrounding areas following a watermain burst.

Homes and businesses in the area may be impacted by water outages while the repairs are carried out. 

 A statement by Irish Water said: "To minimise disruption to customers, Irish Water and Kildare County Council are providing tankers as an alternative water supply. A water tanker will be available from 4pm at the River Forest Shopping Centre. Customers are reminded to bring clean containers and to boil water taken from these stations before use, as a precaution."

The statement said:"Crews have been mobilised and will repair the burst as soon as possible. We expect the burst to be repaired later tonight. Once the watermain has been repaired it may take a number of hours for the water supply to return in full to all impacted properties. 
A traffic management system will be in place for the duration of these urgent repair works."
