Reduced water supply in Skerries from Thurs 7/6/18

Reduced water supply in Skerries from Thurs 7/6/18

Consumers in Skerries and surrounding areas urged to conserve water for the foreseeable future due to increased demand and reducing water levels in the Thomastown Reservoir Water. Restrictions are required to allow water levels in Thomastown Reservoir to recover. The current dry spell and increased seasonal demand are contributing to the reduced available supply of treated drinking water. 

In order to avoid widespread water outages it is necessary to carry out water restrictions on the water supply in the coming days. Restrictions will take place from lunchtime, 7 June, until 11am on 11 June. The restrictions will be lifted for a period from 6am to  10 am each day to allow tanks in homes and businesses to fill. The situation will be reviewed on Monday morning. 

During the water restriction periods the majority of homes and businesses will still have a flow of water to their properties, however low water pressure may be experienced. A small number of properties, those located on the extremities of the network or on higher ground may lose water supply during the restrictions.

Alternative Water Supplies (Boil water Notice) will be provided at the following locations:

- Newtown Parks near Dublin Road Junction,

- Newtown Parks near Selskar Court Junction,

- Skerries Point Shopping Centre near Eurospar.

Customers in the Loughshinny and Skerries Road, Rush areas are also requested to conserve water.
