The Creeslough Water Supply has been given the thumbs up by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), who have removed the supply from their Remedial Action List (RAL).
Over 3,000 consumers use the Creeslough Water Supply, which had been identified as ‘at risk’ of failing to consistently supply safe, clean drinking water.
Extensive investment and upgrade works were carried out by Irish Water working in partnership with Donegal Council to improve the supply.
The latest report from the EPA shows that Irish Water has reduced the number of schemes on the RAL in Donegal from 11 to 4, since 2015.
Works are continuing on the remaining four Donegal water supplies with a view to having them removed from the RAL as soon as possible. The water supplies currently on the RAL are Greencastle, Glenties, Milford and Letterkenny. All four water supplies are expected to be removed from the RAL in 2020.
