Customers in Dublin asked to turn off taps and conserve water

Irish Water is advising customers in Co Dublin 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.
Irish Water working in partnership with Dublin City Council , Fingal and Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Councils would like to apologise to customers for the inconvenience this is causing.
Once further information is available we will issue another update. Updates will also be posted to the supply and service section of Irish Water’s website at
