Update 9 January 2020 - Repair works completed at Trim water treatment plant

Water supply should have returned to customers in Trim town, Dunderry Road, Athboy Road, Bray Hill, Navan Gate, Saint Johns, Knightsbrook, Rock Road, Mornington, Manorlands, Longwood Road and Summerhill. Water supply to customers in Rathmolyon should return later this morning.

Customers urged to conserve water

However, reservoirs serving Trim and surrounding areas are empty and customers are urged to conserve water in order to allow them to refill.

We are appealing to customers to 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 Water Conservation page.

It may be necessary to place restrictions on the supply tonight should water levels in the reservoirs fail to recover.
