Customers urged to conserve water across Co Mayo

Irish Water working in partnership with Mayo County Council would like to advise customers supplied from the Kiltimagh public water supply that there will be restrictions placed on higher lying areas of the scheme tonight from 11pm until 7am. These restrictions are necessary due to unprecedented demand. There will be a continuous supply maintained to the town. 
 
Restrictions on the Louisburgh water supply have now been removed due to a reduction in demand and following repairs to leaks on the scheme. Irish Water, working in partnership with Mayo County Council, would like to thank customers on the Louisburgh supply for reducing their consumption and easing pressure on the treatment plant.
 
The Lough Mask water treatment plant is still operating at maximum capacity and customers supplied by this scheme are urged to conserve water in every way possible. However, water conservation works on the scheme yesterday enabled the reservoirs to replenish.
 
Customers on these supplies and across the county are being asked to conserve water to avoid reservoirs emptying and water pressure to homes and businesses being affected.
 
Across Mayo there are issues with high demand. Irish Water is appealing to customers to turn off taps and check for leaks on their own properties and in holiday homes and unoccupied premises and to report them to Irish Water’s customer care helpline on 1850 278 278. Irish Water is appealing to any customers with external taps to ensure that these are securely turned off as we try to protect the levels of our reservoirs and secure drinking water for local communities. A continuous flow from an external tap over a 24 hour period could use the equivalent of the daily water usage of 40 households.
 
Irish Water is urging customers to conserve water by turning off taps in properties and farm buildings, not running dishwashers or washing machines where possible and taking showers instead of baths.
 
Irish Water and Mayo County Council would like to thank customers in advance for their co-operation in conserving water at this critical time. Irish Water would also like to pay special tribute to local authority staff for their immense efforts in keeping water supplies running in very difficult conditions.
