Cllr Peggy Nolan close to boiling point on Longford water matters


Cllr Peggy Nolan close to boiling point on Longford water matters
37,000 people across Co Longford will wake up this morning and spend their day drinking contaminated water.
Irish Water is currently endeavouring to eliminate the toxins in the water which include Trihalomethanes (THMs) - chemicals formed by the reaction of naturally occurring dissolved organic material and chlorine which is used for disinfection in order to protect against pathogenic bacteria.
The situation is now so serious that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has placed the four water systems in the county on its Remedial Action List (RAL). The four plants include the Ballymahon Water Supply, the Longford Central Supply Scheme, the Granard Water Supply Scheme and the Loch Gowna Water Supply Scheme.
Irish Water, meanwhile, says it is investing in on-going projects to address the different risks to the water supplies affecting over 37,000 people in the county.............
