Portballintrae Drinking Water Problem

Warning message from

Portballintrae Residents Association

8 November 2007 2100hrs

There was a major water main break in Bushmills on Wednesday 7 November. NI Water say they fixed the broken main and flushed the lines on Thursday but the system has apparently not cleared in Portballintrae. They have been alerted to the unacceptable quality of the water and queries have been made as to why there has been no notification to households in the village.

Residents who called were told to run the main tap for one hour, but after 2 hours of constant running this evening, the water still has unacceptable amounts of sediment.

Please make sure your water is running clear before drinking.

NI Water should be out on Friday to run tests and hopefully clear the lines.

Please call NI Water at 08457440088 to report any water quality problems.
