Essential overnight restriction in Trim to maintain sufficient supply during the day
19 July 2023
Customers in Trim asked to continue to conserve water to help reservoir levels recover
Uisce Éireann, advises customers in Trim and surrounding areas that an essential overnight water restriction is required tonight to help Brayhill and Summerhill Reservoir levels recover due to a current high demand for water.
To help reservoir levels recover and maintain a sufficient water supply to homes and businesses during normal working hours, customers may experience reduced water pressure from 10pm tonight, Wednesday 19 July until 6am tomorrow morning. Customers in the following areas may be affected: Trim, Knightsbrook, Scurlockstown; Effernock, Carberstown, Blackfriary, Crowpark, Clonbun, Rathmolyon, and surrounding areas. It can take two to three hours following low pressure for normal supply to be fully restored to all areas as water refills the network.
For more simple ways to conserve water check out the Uisce Éireann website where our Conservation Calculator can help people work out how much water they are currently saving and how they can conserve even more.
Uisce Éireann will continue to monitor the levels at all our supplies over the coming weeks and months and take any actions that may be necessary to maintain supplies, including communicating about localised issues as they arise.
Members of the public can report any leaks in the public water network by contacting Uisce Éireann 24/7 at 1800 278 278 or on our website.
Uisce Éireann are asking the public to help play their part in protecting essential water supplies for their local communities.
There are a number of easy steps people can take to reduce their water usage during the hot weather, including:
- Avoid power washing and keep the garden hose in the shed
- Check for leaks on outdoor taps or troughs as these can lead to large losses of treated water
- Remember that paddling pools and swimming pools can use huge volumes of water so try to minimise the amount of water used and consider reusing the water for the garden or cleaning the car
- Report any visible leaks on the public network to Uisce Éireann on our website
