Kerry County Council has said that the landslide which hit the north of the county at the weekend was the worst in 30 years.
Up to 5,000 homes remain without water this evening, after mud polluted the area's two main water sources.
Engineers are working to make an alternative water supply available on a temporary basis but a 'boil water' notice remains in place.
The landslide, which was up to 16 feet deep in places, blocked roads and engulfed two bridges.
