The boil water notice on the Ballinasloe Public Water Supply Scheme has been lifted.
This follows a meeting yesterday between Galway County Council and the HSE.
The boil water notice was imposed as a precautionary measure, on December 6th following a rise in water levels of the river Suck, as a result of Storm Desmond.
The early stages of the emergency response involved crews pumping 230,000 litres of water per hour out of the treatment plant.
It affected approximately 10,000 Irish Water customers.
The HSE has now confirmed that the Ballinasloe public water supply is now safe for human consumption and as a result has lifted the Boil Water Notice.
All affected can now resume normal use of the water supply for drinking, food preparation and brushing teeth.
