Water supply under pressure in areas of Waterford due to increased demand
Boil Water Notices issued for a number of schemes in Co. Waterford remain in effect
Irish Water is advising customers in Waterford 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.
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.
Boil Water Notices which have been issued for the following schemes in Co. Waterford remain in effect:
Customers on these schemes should continue to boil water before use for drinking, preparing drinks made with water, preparation of salads and similar foods which are not cooked prior to eating, brushing of teeth and making of ice.
Irish Water working in partnership with Waterford City and County Council would like to apologise to customers for the inconvenience this is causing.
