Monksland public water tap now in place

A public water tap is now in place at Roscommon County Council offices in Monksland to allow people affected by the ongoing boil water notice to source water.
Fine Gael’s Ollie Moore confirmed to the Westmeath Independent yesterday  that the water tap is now in-situ at the civic offices in Monksland, following assurances he received from Director of Services, Majella Hunt, at the most recent Roscommon County Council meeting.
A HSE directive means a boil water notice will still apply to the Monksland water tap, he added, however, the public can be assured that the water is uncontaminated as it comes Lisbrock springs which is free of cryptosporidium.
Asked last week when the initial plans came to light whether he was disappointed it has taken several weeks to get the measure in place, Cllr Moore said: “I’m happy it’s going in there and I’m grateful they (council) are doing it...It’s a source of water that people can use without having to pay for it”.
