Following consultation with the HSE, consumers of the Gowran-Abbeygrove Development Small Private Supply are notified that water on this scheme is not suitable for consumption by babies under age of six months. This is due to elevated levels of nitrates in the water supply.

How long before I can use tap water normally again ?
