Overnight restrictions for customers supplied by Enniscorthy Town Water Supply to help reservoir levels recover
14 November 2023
Restrictions from 11pm to 6am, tonight and tomorrow night to maintain daytime supply.
Uisce Éireann, in partnership with Wexford County Council, advises that essential overnight water restrictions are necessary for customers supplied by Enniscorthy Town Water Supply to ensure daytime supply for the community. The restrictions, which will be put in place tonight and tomorrow night, Wednesday,15 November from 11pm until 6am, are required in order to help reservoir levels recover after essential repairs were carried out over the weekend. The areas affected include Enniscorthy Town and surrounding areas.
Some customers may experience reduced pressure while others may experience water outages during these times. Water levels are being reviewed daily and the restrictions will be in place until Thursday morning, 16 November.
Thanking the community for their patience, Uisce Éireann’s Jim Fitzgerald said: “We understand the impact restrictions have on a community, but they are essential to allow reservoir levels to recover overnight and maintain a consistent supply of drinking water for customers during the day. We thank the community for their support and ask them to consider their water usage in the days ahead.”
