Customers in Co. Laois asked to turn off taps and conserve water

Irish Water is advising customers in Co. Laois that due to the extremely cold weather conditions and exceptionally high water demand, some water treatment plants in the county are struggling to keep up with supply demands. 

All customers are being asked to conserve water to avoid reservoirs emptying and water pressure to homes and  businesses being affected. Water restrictions will be in place from 6pm tonight to 8am on Monday, 5 March 2018 for customers in Swan, Newtown Doonane and Crettyyard townlands areas to allow water levels in the reservoir to refill. 

Customers throughout the county are urged to conserve water by not running taps unnecessarily, taking showers instead of baths and to refrain from using dishwashers and washing machines.

Irish Water working in partnership with Laois County Council would like to apologise to customers for the inconvenience this is causing.
