‘Chemical smell’ off Bray tap wa­ter


Bray People - - NEWS -

A BRAY res­i­dent com­plain­ing of strange tast­ing wa­ter said that other homes in the Sans Souci Wood es­tate were af­fected.

The man, who lives in the Ve­vay Road area, wrote to Bray Town Coun­cil last week in­form­ing them that there was a chemical smell and taste from the tap wa­ter.

How­ever he said that the of­fi­cials came back to him very quickly. ‘I got a re­sponse within half an hour of send­ing the email,’ he said.

‘ They ex­plained that the so­lu­tion be­ing used was too strong and over-con­cen­trated.’ He added that while there was still a bit of a taste it will take a lit­tle time for the wa­ter to re­turn to nor­mal.

‘Our drink­ing wa­ter is nor­mally ex­cel­lent,’ he said.

‘I have checked with a num­ber of neigh­bours and they all had the same is­sue.’
