We urge consumers to play their part and conserve water to minimise the level and extent of any necessary restrictions being put in place to reduce demand. http://www.taptips.ie provides a number of very simple steps that people can take at home and at work to conserve water, without adversely impacting on their daily lives.
Consumers experiencing extreme hardship should contact the following Emergency Telephone Number – 01 2223881. Further statements will issue before the weekend to update the public.

The City Council are locating and repairing watermain bursts as quickly as possible. While the accumulation of snow makes it difficult to identify leakages reports should be made through our contact no. 01 2220600. Consumers can continue to help by reducing their water usage to the lowest level possible. It is emphasised that there is no need for anyone to store water in anticipation of the restrictions as they will be confined at most to 12 hour periods from 7pm to 7am. This is well within the storage capacity of every home.

Customers should be aware that unlike some other utilities, water distribution systems cannot be operated and managed to the point where the exact locations and precise times at which the effects of pressure alternations (both increases and decreases) will be experienced, however we do make every effort to ensure that the times and areas effected are limited to those mentioned above.

We would like to thank people for their patience and cooperation and we would ask that people report locations where they see water running/rising to the contacts given below.

Bogus callers may use the current water problems to gain access to houses. If a member of Dublin City Council calls to a property they will always carry and produce identification. If the caller asks you to check the flow of water at the taps, close the door fully while you do so. If you are in any doubt do not allow access.
