Overnight restrictions remain in place for Tully to help reservoir levels recover
18 August 2023
Night-time water restrictions are necessary for customers supplied by Tully Water Treatment Plant to ensure a daytime supply for the Galway community.
The restrictions, which are in place from 11pm each evening to 7am the following morning, are required due to a combination of factors including the poor raw water quality entering the plant and the continued high demand for water.
Water levels are being reviewed daily and updates provided to the community as necessary.
Calling on the community in Tully to conserve water, Uisce Éireann’s Eoin Hughes said: “These restrictions allow reservoir levels to recover overnight and maintain a consistent supply of drinking water for customers during the day. I continue to call on people in Galway to play their part in ensuring there is enough water for everyone as we go through the summer."
“It is important that we all consider our water usage and look at simple yet impactful ways to conserve water. It can sometimes be difficult to know where to start, but even small changes can make a significant difference, for example, turning off the hose, avoiding power washing and checking for leaks on outdoor taps.”
