Customers across Co. Westmeath are being asked to conserve water as water supply is under pressure due to increase demand

Irish Water is advising customers in Co. Westmeath 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 Athlone Town, Annagh, Baylin, Mount Temple, Ories, Ballinagore, Kilbeggan, Horseleap and Streamstown  areas to allow water levels in reservoirs to refill. 

Leaks on Church Street and Cornamagh being repaired

A leak in Church Street in Athlone is being repaired today and a leak in Cornamagh will be repaired tomorrow. 

Water levels in Castlepollard, Delvin and Clonmellon in Mullingar are low due to increased demand and customers area again urged to conserve water in these areas.  

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 Westmeath County Council would like to apologise to customers for the inconvenience this is causing.
