Water restrictions lifted on the Ardfinnan Regional Public Water Supply
09 October 2023
Uisce Éireann and Tipperary County Council will continue to monitor reservoir levels
Night-time water restrictions that were in place for customers supplied by the Ardfinnan Regional Public Water Supply have now been lifted. Restrictions were in place over the weekend due to operational issues that were experienced at the plant which resulted in reservoirs reaching low levels.
Uisce Éireann and Tipperary County Council wish to thank the customers for their patience during the restrictions and especially for their efforts to conserve water.
Uisce Éireann’s Regional Operations Lead Colin Cunningham said, “The night-time restrictions were necessary to give the reservoirs time to replenish and allowed us to maintain water supply to homes and businesses during daytime hours. We thank customers for their patience while the restrictions were in place on the Ardfinnan Regional Public Water Supply over the weekend.”
Uisce Éireann and Tipperary County Council will continue to monitor reservoir levels to determine if further restrictions are required.

Overnight water restrictions are necessary for customers supplied by Ardfinnan Regional Public Water Supply to ensure a daytime supply for the Tipperary community. The restrictions are required due to operational issues that were experienced at the plant which has resulted in reservoirs reaching low levels. The Operational issues experienced have since been addressed.
However to help reservoir levels refill to a satisfactory standard, night-time water restrictions will take place from tonight (Friday the 6th October) each night from 9pm to 7am until Monday, 9th of October. An update will be provided on Monday to inform customers if further night-time restrictions are required.
Some customers may experience reduced pressure while others may experience water outages.

Thanking the community for their patience, Uisce Éireann’s Colin Cunningham 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.”
