Irish Water and Dublin City Council plan to carry out essential maintenance on a water main supplying Howth, Sutton, Baldoyle, Kilbarrack Lower, Grange Road and surrounding areas from 10pm on Saturday 1 July, until 10pm on Sunday 2 July.
This work is necessary to improve the security of the water supply to customers in Howth, Sutton, Baldoyle, Kilbarrack Lower, Grange Road and surrounding areas. By carrying out this work in a controlled manner at night, Irish Water aims to minimise inconvenience to homes and businesses.

Our priority in carrying out this essential work is to keep any disruption to residents and businesses to an absolute minimum. The work is being carried out to improve the security of the water supply to customers.
Should customers in the areas that are served by the water main experience a loss in water supply a number of mobile tankers will be available on Sunday, 2 July. We are asking customers that have no water supply due to the upgrade work to contact us on 01 864 3634 to arrange for a mobile tanker to come to their area.

Irish Water and Dublin County Council will be liaising with all vulnerable customers and other large water users to ensure that the impact on them can be managed and minimised.
It is expected that water supply will be returned to normal to all areas by 22:00hrs on Sunday, 2 July. However, some customers may continue to experience low or intermittent pressure for a period of time on as flows return to normal throughout the system. Some customers may also notice changes in the colour of their water, such as a dirty or cloudy appearance. If this occurs they are advised to run the cold tap until it runs clear. Customers should also check the clarity of the water before operating washing machines, dishwashers and other appliances.
