Dublin water supplies restricted again tonight

Review of water levels at Stillorgan Reservoir will be conducted tomorrow

Restrictions on water supplies across Dublin city have been imposed again tonight.

They are being imposed by Dublin City Council from 7pm to 7am tomorrow. Consumers across the entire city will experience lower pressures or in some cases a possible loss of supply.

A review of water levels at Stillorgan Reservoir will be conducted tomorrow to determine if the limits can be lifted.

A spokesman for the council has urged householders and businesses in Dublin to help conserve water. “We will make every effort possible to maintain water pressures during peak demand periods, but pressures will be reduced at times.”

Damage caused by the unseasonably cold weather has increased leakage in the system while a production issue at the Roundwood treatment plant in Co Wicklow has also caused a reduction in supplies.

The council has urged members of the public to visit taptips.ie for easy water saving tips.
