Customers across Co. Cork are being reminded to conserve water as supply is under pressure due to increased demand

March 4th 2018 Update - Irish Water is advising customers in Youghal that restrictions will be put in place from this evening until 8am in the morning to allow water levels in reservoirs to refill.

Crews working on behalf of Irish Water and Cork County Council have been working throughout the day to fix leaks and other issues arising from the recent spell of extreme weather. However high demand in recent days has led to reservoirs emptying which is causing ongoing supply disruption for some parts of the town.

Restricting the supply overnight should allow the reservoirs to refill and help to restore normal water supply in the morning. Pressure will be reduced from 6pm with supply shut off from 11pm until 8am in the morning.

Supplies of tankered water will remain in place at Holy Family Church and Dolphin Square carpark until 11pm tonight and again tomorrow for as long as they are needed.

All customers in Cork are being asked to conserve water over the coming days by not running taps unnecessarily, taking showers instead of baths and checking for leaks.

Irish Water working in partnership with Cork County Council would like to apologise to customers for the inconvenience this is causing and thank them for their support as we work to restore normal water supplies as quickly as possible.

Updates will be posted to the Supply and Service section and via the 24/7 customer care line at 1850 278 278.
