Dublin Water Restrictions will remain in place until at least Thursday 7th November  

Dublin City Council, on behalf of the four Dublin Local Authorities, is advising consumers in the entire Dublin region that the current water restrictions will remain in place each evening, from tonight until at least Thursday 7th November, from 8.00pm each evening, to 7.00am the following morning.

The council is reviewing the water supply situation on a daily basis and a decision will be taken when appropriate, to change the current level of restrictions. Consumers all over the Dublin region are urged to conserve water, in an effort to assist us in restoring levels in the treated water reservoirs to normal. It should be stressed that there is no problem with the quality of treated drinking water or with storage levels of untreated/raw water.

An analysis of the current situation carried out at Ballymore Eustace Water Treatment Plant, has shown a stabilisation in production at the Plant. However, despite this stabilisation, production at the Plant is still at a level well below that required to meet demand. Coupled with this, storage levels at our treated water reservoirs remain at an unsustainably low level.

A series of tests currently being conducted at Ballymore Eustace involves adjusting the various inputs to the treatment process, with the objective of identifying what caused the slowdown in production and how to resolve the issue. Dublin City Council Engineers and our Central Laboratory Technicians continue to work 24 hours a day, to identify the cause of the problem and to mitigate the effects. As previously stated, it may take some time to completely resolve the issue.

The council is also asking people to visit www.taptips.ie for easy water saving tips. While  every effort possible is being made to maintain pressures during peak demand periods, pressures will be reduced during the times indicated above. This will result in lower pressures and loss of supply across the entire Dublin region.

The four Dublin Local Authorities have apologised for the inconvenience caused by these restrictions and will do everything possible to minimise their scale and duration. They are asking consumers bear with them while they work to restore the water supply to normal. The Dublin Local Authorities greatly appreciate the efforts people and businesses are making to conserve water.

Water is precious. Let’s conserve it.
