In order to reduce the impact on customers, the works will be carried out on Tuesday evening from 9pm to 11pm. Customers in Macroom town, Mashanaglass, Canovee and surrounding areas may experience some disruption to their water supply from 9pm to 11pm on Tuesday 01 June. It may take 2-3 hours following restoration time for the network to refill and normal water supply to fully return, however, please continue to follow the HSE guidance on handwashing. Irish Water and Cork County Council regret any inconvenience these essential works may cause. Up to date information on these works will be available on our website here: https://www.water.ie/water-supply/supply-and-service-update/?ref=COR00033549
