Parts of North City Centre may experience lower than usual water pressure as repairs are carried out to burst water main
Significant burst on a water main in the Drumcondra
Irish Water Working in partnership with Dublin City Council are carrying out repairs to a significant burst on a 600mm diameter water main in the Drumcondra area.
Every effort has been made by DCC staff working in partnership with Irish Water to minimize the disruption to homes and businesses by diverting water from other locations in order to limit the impact of the burst. However some areas may experience lower pressure than normal while the repair is being carried out.
The areas that may be impacted with low pressure are parts of: The North Inner City, Drumcondra, Artane, Fairview, Clontarf, and Raheny, Whitehall, Santry and Cabra.
Repair work to continue throughout the day
It is expected that the repair work will continue throughout the day. Traffic Management is in place.
