Restrictions due to very low water levels

Irish Water wishes to advise customers in Mountbolus, Co Offaly that restrictions will be in place on their water supply from 10pm until 6am nightly, starting tonight. 

Due to seasonal low ground water levels, and following the record summer drought conditions, water levels in the well supplying the Mountbolus Public Water Supply Scheme are very low.

Tankering drinking water to reservoir serving the area

We are working with our partners in Offaly County Council to maintain the water supply to customers by tankering drinking water supplies to the reservoir serving the area. However, to ensure there is adequate water in the reservoir each morning, it is necessary to impose restrictions nightly between 10pm and 6am until further notice.

Please conserve water where possible

We are appealing to customers to be conscious of your water use and conserve water where possible. Please report any leaks to us online via our Report a Leak form or by phone on 1850 278 278. For advice on how to conserve water at home, visit our Conservation section. Thank you for your cooperation and patience during these necessary restrictions.
