Uisce Éireann is working with South Dublin County Council to restore water supply as quickly as possible to impacted customers following a burst to a water main at Orwell Road Dublin 6W.  

Whilst every effort is being made to maintain supply to as many customers as possible, the burst is impacting the water supply to customers in Bishop Shanahan National School, Templeogue Woods, Cypress Downs, Rossmore Estate, Hillcrest Estate, Corrybeg, Old Bridge Road Templeogue and surrounding areas in Dublin 6W.

Dedicated water service crews are progressing with repairs which are expected to be completed by 4 pm today. It typically takes two to three hours to restore normal supply to all customers affected by an unplanned outage.
