University Hospital Waterford has been forced to cancel all elective procedures planned for today due to issues with its water supply.

According to RTE the issue arose after a depletion of water supply levels over the weekend due to a technical fault following a lightning strike at pumps in a local reservoir.

This means the water quantity supplied to the hospital is not at the required quantity or quality.

In a statement the hospital said:

“Arising from difficulties experienced in the public water supply from one of Waterford’s reservoirs, University Hospital Waterford as a precautionary measure, is postponing elective procedures for a period of 24 hours, The situation will be monitored closely on an ongoing basis.”
