Water supply under pressure in areas of Co. Kildare due to increased demand
Customers in Monasterevin area are particularly being asked to conserve water
Irish Water is advising customers in Co. Kildare 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.
Customers are being asked to conserve water to avoid reservoirs emptying and water pressure to homes and businesses being affected.
Customers Monasterevin area are particularly being asked to conserve water due to high demand in the area and an electrical fault at the Kildare Wellfields Water Treatment. Repairs are expected to be completed today at the plant.
Repairs to a burst water main may cause supply disruptions to Hazelhatch Road, Ardclough Road and surrounding areas in Co. Kildare. Crews are working to restore supply to affected areas as soon as possible.
Customers throughout Co Kildare 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 Kildare County Council thanks customers for their patience while we work to resolve all issues due to the extremely cold weather conditions and would like to apologise to customers for any inconvenience caused. We wish to reassure customers that work and repairs are ongoing and are being completed as soon as it is safe to do so.
