Work is continuining to improve water supplies in three areas around Co Waterford.
A National report into drinking water standards by the EPA says that while more than 99 per cent of drinking water samples complied with safety standards last year, 87 supplies around the country need to be upgraded to avoid the risk of contamination by chemicals or infections.
700 thousand people are served by these ‘at risk’ supplies, with nearly half of them based in Cork, Kerry and Donegal.
In Waterford currently Irish Water are continuing to fix issues in the Ring Helvick, Stradbally and Lismore areas affecting around 15 hundred people.
Remedial works at Inchinleamy were completed at the end of August.
The EPA says a big problem in many supplies is the risk of contamination with THM chemicals, which are byproducts of disinfection.
