Customers are being asked to conserve water to avoid reservoirs emptying and water pressure to homes and businesses being affected.

Irish Water working in partnership with Mayo County Council is advising customers in Co Mayo, and especially those supplied by the Lough Mask water supply, that due to the extremely cold weather conditions and exceptionally high usage, water treatment plants are struggling to keep up with water supply demands. 
 
Customers are being asked to conserve water to avoid reservoirs emptying and water pressure to homes and businesses being affected.
 
The Lough Mask supply is at capacity with high demand also being registered on the Achill, Mulranny, Erris, Louisburgh, Ballina, and Castlebar water supply schemes due to, more than likely, taps being left running in peoples’ homes and on farms.
 
Irish Water is urging customers to conserve water by turning off taps in properties and farm buildings, not running dishwashers or washing machines where possible and taking showers instead of baths.
 
Irish Water and Mayo County Council would like to thank customers in advance for their co-operation in conserving water at this critical time. Irish Water would also like to thank the local authority staff for their efforts in keeping water supplies running in very difficult conditions.
