Update on water conservation measures in Skerries

Update on water conservation measures in Skerries

and surrounding areas

13th June 2018 - Irish Water will maintain full water supply to the Skerries area for Wednesday night following previous programme of restrictions which has resulted in improved reservoir levels. Any necessity to carry out further reduced night-time restrictions on the supply to avoid widespread water outages for the area, is and will continue to be under daily review.

The easing of restrictions has been made possible because of the positive impact on the reservoir levels through the restrictions over recent days and the conservation efforts of those members of the community who did have water.

Irish Water together with Fingal County Council are urging those customers who do have full supply in Skerries and surrounding areas to continue conserving water for the foreseeable future due to increased demand and to help maintain water levels in the Thomastown Reservoir. Customers in the Loughshinny and Skerries Road, Rush areas are also being urged to conserve water.

The current dry spell and increased seasonal demand are contributing to the reduced available supply of treated drinking water.

The water levels in the reservoir will continue to be under daily review. Irish Water together with Fingal County Council are hopeful that if water conservation measures continue to be implemented in homes and businesses, the potential need for restrictions will decrease.

In an effort to minimise potential interruptions, those customers who do have full supply are being asked to conserve water by refraining from watering gardens, washing cars, using power hoses and minimising their use generally. If people are experiencing particular difficulties please contact our customer care helpline 24/7 on 1850 278 278 and we will provide whatever assistance we can.

Every small effort to save water will contribute to maintaining supplies and benefit your entire community by reducing the likelihood of water restrictions.

Irish Water would like to thank all of those users who have already undertaken to conserve water.

To help conserve water customers are being asked to report any leaks they see on the public network and to repair any private side leaks in their homes and businesses to help restore water levels in the network. Customers can report any public side leaks online at www.water.ie or by calling the customer care helpline 24/7 on 1850 278 278. Any customers who are in particular need should please call the customer care helpline to get additional assistance from Irish Water. 06 2018
