Water rationing in parts of East Meath due to high water demand and depleting reservoir levels
Water levels need to refill in reservoirs and customers across East Meath asked to conserve water
Due to reduced water production at the Staleen Water Treatment Plant and depleted reservoirs levels in Carnes and Balloy reservoirs, Irish Water regrettably has to introduce temporary water rationing in the following areas:
Water Outage from 10am to 5pm on Monday 5 March 2018
Water Outage from 5pm on Monday, 5 March 2018 to 9am on Tuesday, 6 March 2018
Water supply to these areas is being monitored
The water supply to these areas is constantly being monitored and reviewed and changes to the above arrangements may need to be implemented as the situation progresses.
Water levels need to refill in reservoirs and we are asking customers across East Meath supplied by the Staleen Water Treatment Plant to conserve water to allow water levels to increase.
Irish Water and Meath County Council are at this time reconfiguring the existing water supply network in an effort to maintain and restore water supply to customers impacted by the outage.
Work is ongoing to restore water supply
Irish Water working in partnership with Meath County Council thanks customers for their patience while we work to resolve all issues due to the extremely cold weather conditions and would like to apologise to customers for any inconvenience this outage is causing. We wish to reassure customers that work is ongoing to restore a public water supply to all customers.
