Engineers are assessing the situation and Irish Water, the HSE and larger commercial water users have been informed.

Some discolouration to the water supply may occur when the water supply is restored.

This discolouration is harmless and will clear in a short time.

Please check the clarity of the water at the kitchen tap before operating drink vending machines, washing machines, dishwashers etc.

Please help us by informing your neighbours who may not hear this notice. The bursting of this pipe has caused localised flooding around the Lee Road Waterworks and city council engineers are attempting to remove this water.

Cork City Council, acting as agents for Irish Water, regrets any inconvenience caused to consumers as a result of this work.
