Irish Water Announces Weekend Water Restrictions In These Dublin Areas

People around Skerries are being urged to be cautious about the amount of water they use. 

Irish Water has said it's experiencing an increase in demand, and a drop in water levels.

The notice is in place for the foreseeable future as the warm weather looks set to continue into next week. 

Pressure in the area will drop from now until Monday until the reservoir is built back up. 

The following locations supplied with water from the Thomastown Reservoir are likely to be impacted by the restrictions:

  • Barnageeragh 
  • Skerries Rock 
  • parts of Downside
  • Hamilton hill
  • Town Parks 
  • Newtown Parks
  • St Patricks close
  • Kellys bay
  • Greenhills
  • Millview
  • Hillside Gardens
  •  Moran View
  • Hoar Park

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

Alternative Water Supplies 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 

Irish Water said, "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. "

In an effort to minimise the interruptions people are being asked to not water gardens, wash cars, use power hoses and minime their use generally. 

They're also 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. 

Don't even think about a water fight, lads.
