Customers asked to conserve water
Irish Water and Louth County Council are working with the ESB to restore power to the Staleen Water Treatment plant as soon as possible. The power outage has stopped water production at the plant which serves Drogheda and East Meath. The supply to these areas is currently dependent on storage in the reservoirs.
The Lourdes Hospital and other priority health care facilities have been notified. We are urging customers to conserve water by not running taps, taking showers instead of baths and to refrain from using dishwashers and washing machines. We will continue to provide updates throughout the day.
Working in partnership with Louth County Council, we would like to apologise to customers for the inconvenience this is causing and assures customers that repairs will be completed as soon as possible. We can confirm that ESB is prioritizing restoring power to the plant and Meath County Council is assisting to provide road access to enable repairs to be carried out.

When more information is available we will issue another update. Updates will also be posted to the Supply and Service section.
