17 July 2022

Increased demand as warm weather continues

Irish Water is reminding the public in Galway City and Galway County to be mindful of their water usage as some supplies are experiencing increased demand this weekend as the spell of warm weather continues. 

Speaking about the developing situation, Irish Water’s Rónan Daly said: “We are appealing to the public in Galway and in particular the City area west of the Corrib, along with Barna, Moycullen and surrounding areas to be mindful of how they use their water at home, as the temperature continues to soar this weekend. We are appealing to customers to help conserve water by not running taps needlessly, taking showers instead of baths and to postpone using dishwashers and washing machines where possible. Further information on water conservation is available on our website at www.water.ie/conserve.”

The Irish Water customer care helpline is open 24/7 on 1800 278 278 and customers can also contact us on Twitter @IWCare with any queries. For updates please visit our Water Supply Updates section.
