As per the instructions of the National Emergency Co-Ordination Group (NECG), to ensure the health and safety of our workers and the local authority staff working in water services, there will be no staff available to respond to water or wastewater emergencies during the red weather warning called by Met Eireann from 4pm Thursday 1 March.

The Irish Water contact centre will be available during these hours on 1850 278278 for customers to report outages. Calls will be logged for action after the red warning has been lifted. When the warning is lifted calls will be prioritised.

For areas who do lose supply, alternative water supplies will be mobilised after the red warning has lifted.

View information on dealing with frozen pipes on our frozen and burst pipes page and water supply updates on our service and supply map.

Customers should conserve water where possible at this time by not running dishwashers or washing machines where possible or taking baths.
