KILKENNY COUNTY COUNCIL has lifted a boiled water notice to residents living in the Gowran, Goresbridge and Paulstown areas of the county after tests revealed an organic contaminant in the water supply.

The Kilkenny Director of Services, Philip O’Neill was delighted to say that ‘after a series of meeting with the HSE, the boil notice can now be lifted’.

The council confirmed that an “organic pollution incident” occurred at springs in Paulstown that was effecting the quality of water in the area. The alarm was raised after the levels of chlorine that are added to the water in order to kill foreign contaminants were being used up at a far greater rate than is normal. However, a lift on the boil notice has now been confirmed.
