Water treatment plants struggling to keep up with water supply demands

Irish Water working in partnership with Mayo County Council is advising customers in Co. Mayo 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.

Registered areas of high demand

High demand is being registered on the Achill, Mulranny, Erris, Louisburgh, Ballina, Castlebar and Lough Mask water supply schemes due to, more than likely, taps being left running in peoples’ homes.

Irish Water is urging customers to conserve water by not running dishwashers or washing machines where possible and taking showers instead of baths.

Do you have frozen or burst pipes?

For Information on dealing with frozen or burst pipes, visit our dedicated support page. Water supply updates are available on our Supply and Service section.

Irish Water and Mayo County Council would like to thank customers in advance for their co-operation in conserving water at this critical time.
