Is no hot water coming out of your tap ? Are only specific taps working in your home but others are not? If the cold water tap in the tank is working, then press down on the ball valve in your water cistern to see if water flows into it – if it does not, then the main supply pipe may be frozen.

Cork County Council took samples of water from the property in Carrigaline on both July 4 and July 8, and found they were compliant with all tests for various parameters, including E. coli.

Follow-up tests on the Inniscarra plant, which extracts drinking water supplies from the River Lee, revealed the presence of worms in a filter. The audit said daily samples were taken from the treated water reservoir, as well as the raw water tanks and lake at Inniscarra, over the following week, which revealed no further evidence of any worms.

It noted that both Irish Water and the council had been in contact with the HSE on the issue, in order to consult over any potential risk to public health. Irish Water said it intended to increase backwashing flow rates to provide more effective cleaning of filters where there had been a build-up of material. The affected filter was chlorinated to a higher concentration to ensure any remaining worms were killed.

Irish Water also carried out flushing in the distribution system, starting with the pipe network close to the complainant’s house. The EPA recommended Irish Water undertake sampling of all filters at the Inniscarra plant as part of its regular maintenance operations. An Irish Water spokesperson said that it was continuing to update the agency, “with a view to closing out all recommendations”.
