Customers asked to conserve water
Water levels need to refill in reservoirs and we are asking customers across Meath and Louth supplied by the Staleen Water Treatment Plant to conserve water to allow water levels to increase.
Irish Water working in partnership with Meath County Council thanks customers for their patience while we work to resolve all issues due to the extremely cold weather conditions and would like to apologise to customers for any inconvenience this outage is causing. We wish to reassure customers that work is ongoing to restore a public water supply to all customers.
