    Public Water Supply at the North and South Brittas Bay Beaches

    Following the advice of the HSE, Irish Water and Wicklow County Council have put in place a ‘Do Not Consume’ notice on the public water supply at the North and South Brittas Bay Beaches. The notice only applies to the public water supplies at the North and South Brittas Bay Beaches and no other public supplies in the area are affected. The notice has been imposed due to an exceedance in the standard levels of sodium, chloride and arsenic in the supplies.

    Irish Water is committed to providing a safe public drinking water supply at Brittas Bay Beach and will work closely with Wicklow County Council to resolve the issue. In the interim, anyone using the public facilities at the beach must follow the guidelines set out in the ‘Do Not Consume’ Notice. The notice has no impact on the bathing waters at the beach. Irish Water wishes to reassure customers using this public drinking water supply that it is a priority for us to resolve this issue as soon as possible.

    Customers using the public drinking water supply at Brittas Bay Beach must not use the water for:

    • Drinking, 
    • Drinks made with water
    • Food preparation, washing or cooking of food,
    • Brushing of teeth
    • In particular, pregnant women should not drink this water.
    • This water should not be used for making up infant formula for bottled fed infants.  An alternative source of water should be used. If using bottled water, the bottled water should be boiled first (to sterilise) and avoid bottled water labelled as ‘Natural Mineral Water’ as it can have higher levels of sodium and other minerals. It can be used if no other water is available, for as short a time as possible, as it is important to keep babies hydrated.
    • The water can be used for flushing toilets, washing and showering

    Please note boiling the water will not be sufficient to make it suitable to consume.

  • Following the Second World War, Town Twinning was extended in Europe as a means of promoting mutual understanding and cross-border projects.

    Town twinning is supported by the European Union and since 1989 The Council of European Municipalities and Regions has worked closely with the European Commission to promote modern, high quality twinning initiatives and exchanges that involve all sections of the community.

    The European Union had fostered more than 7,000 bilateral relationships involving almost 10,000 European municipalities and in most cases geographical distance has very little influence upon communities' selections of a twin town. In fact Town twinning has increasingly been used to form strategic international business links.

    County Wicklow's ties with Wurzburg were originally established following contact between St. Cronans School and its sister school in Wurzburg, where St. Cronan is the Patron Saint

    County Wicklow values its close ties with all its Twin City Partners.
