Overnight water restrictions so final works can be completed

Irish Water and Fingal County Council wish to advise customers in Balbriggan that essential works to safeguard the water supply to homes and businesses may cause supply disruptions on Thursday 9 April from 10am to 1pm. A new water main from Jordanstown to Balbriggan was connected to the network earlier today, final modifications to the existing Balbriggan network will be completed tomorrow Thursday between 10am and 1pm. 

There have been a series of overnight water restrictions in the area to allow reservoirs to fill so that these final works can be completed with the least impact possible. Water supply to the majority of customers will be dependent on reservoir storage and therefore we are asking customers in the area to be mindful of how they use water. 

Conserve where possible

It is important to continue to follow the HSE guidance on hand washing. While handwashing remains a priority, simple water conservation efforts can have a big impact on reducing demand on the supply. Turning off the tap while brushing your teeth and shaving can save up to 6 litres of water per minute. Taking a shower instead of a bath or using a watering car rather than a hose when gardening can also make a big difference in water use. We are also reminding people with responsibility for properties that are currently unoccupied to check for leaks and turn off water where it is not required. There are lots more tips on how to conserve water in your home on our Conservation page.

Areas impacted

While the works are underway, the following areas may be impacted by low water pressure and in some instances water outages; Convent Lane, Dublin Street, Drogheda Street, Georges Hill, High Street, Hampton Cove, Mill Street, Quay Street, Railway Street, St. Paul’s Crescent and surrounding areas. 

Following completion of the works tomorrow, there are no further planned restrictions in Balbriggan and customers will benefit from a more secure supply.

It can take a number of hours for normal water supply to be restored to all impacted customers as the network refills.

Irish Water is working at this time, with our local authority partners, contractors and others to safeguard the health and well-being of staff and the public and to ensure the continuity of drinking water and wastewater services.
