Required to carry out essential water network maintenance 

Uisce Éireann is carrying out essential network maintenance works in Douglas on Sunday, 21 April 2024. To facilitate these works an essential water outage is required from 9am on Sunday, 21 April until approximately 2pm on Sunday, 21 April on the South Douglas Road, Douglas Road and surrounding areas.

The essential works are required to repair a damaged valve and will strengthen the water supply network in the area by reducing leakage and improving water pressure.

The outage will potentially impact up to 5,300 customers in the area. The outage is expected to last approximately five hours; however, it may take an additional two or three hours for supply to be fully restored to all customers. A map of the impacted areas is attached.
