Bennettsbridge water scheme will continue on nightly restrictions due to water shortages
Restrictions will continue from 8pm until 6am each day
Irish Water wishes to remind customers that the Bennettsbridge water supply Scheme in Kilkenny will remain on nightly restrictions. These restrictions are being monitored and reviewed on an ongoing basis and will continue from 8pm until 6am each day.
Customers in the majority of the scheme should have water back by 9am each morning. The water supply will be restored to customers as the network refills. It can take a number of hours for the water to return fully to customers on higher ground or at the end of the network once the water supply is turned back on.
This action is required to utilize the available raw water as best as possible to supply as many customers as possible, as we progress through this unprecedented period of drought.
Please Conserve Water
Irish Water would like to thank customers for their patience and understanding as we deal with the impact of drought on our water sources. We would ask customers to continue to make every effort to conserve water.
