Night-time restrictions for Ashbourne and Trim to ensure daytime supply

Information below is relevant until further updates are provided here or on our Supply and Service Updates section.

Overnight restrictions are necessary for Uisce Éireann customers in Ashbourne and Trim tonight to maintain a normal supply for the communities in the coming days. 

The Ashbourne restrictions will be in place from 10pm tonight, Wednesday, 27 March to 5am tomorrow, Thursday, 28 March to allow the Rath Reservoir levels recharge. Meanwhile, customers in Trim may experience outages or reduced pressure tonight as restrictions are in place there from10pm to 6am to ensure a daytime supply.

Uisce Éireann monitors the reservoir levels daily and will provide an update if further restrictions are needed later in the week.

Uisce Éireann's Michael Cunniffe thanked both communities for continuing to help conserve water during daytime hours. 

"We understand the inconvenience that restrictions cause, but they are necessary if we are to ensure we have a daytime supply for all our customers. We continue to monitor the reservoir levels each day and we will provide an update if further restrictions are needed later this week. We thank customers for their patience.

"The majority of customers should have adequate storage in their attic tanks to provide for essential uses such as flushing toilets for the duration of this restriction. However, customers can help conserve water by not running taps needlessly, taking showers instead of baths and postponing using dishwashers and washing machines where possible.

"Customers can find useful water saving tips on our website This also includes an easy-to-use conservation calculator so you can work out how much water you are currently saving and how to conserve even more."

The Uisce Éireann customer care helpline is open 24/7 on 1800 278 278 and customers can also contact us on X @IWCare with any queries. For updates on local water supply issues, please visit the Water Supply Updates section of
