Update on water supply situation – 29th December 2010 – 11.30 am

The water supply situation to 12.00am last night was as follows:

28th December 2010 – Production 554.9Mld Demand – 575.8Mld


This represents a loss of almost 20.9 Mld. Storage at Stillorgan is now down to 532Mld although during the night we did manage to put storage into some of the other reservoirs in the region. We still have a lot of work to do to stabilise the situation. Our crews continue to work on identifying leaks and dealing with burst pipes. We are maintaining our appeal to homeowners and all key holders for businesses, schools etc to check for leaks within their property.

The very restrictive regime will have to continue. As many schools and businesses are still closed for the Christmas period we are again applying restrictions and widespread cut-offs from 6pm this evening the 29th December to 12 noon tomorrow, 30th December.

It should also be noted that there could be loss of supply in other areas at short notice due to broken mains and every effort is being made to advise people of these more localised problems on the website also. Where water supply has been off due to broken mains and these are fixed during the day we will endeavour to alter the restrictions so that they get some water during the evening/night although this will be difficult to achieve in all cases.

We are very mindful of the importance of New Year’s Eve to business and we will advise the public and business community of our proposals in that regard tomorrow (30th).

We would ask key holders to return and check their premises to ensure that there in water damage arising from burst pipes.
