Water supply under pressure in areas of Wexford due to increased demand
Some water treatment plants in the county are struggling to keep up with supply demands.
Irish Water is advising customers in Wexford that due to the extremely cold weather conditions and exceptionally high water demand.
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.
Approximately 1,000 Irish Water customers served by the Fardystown Regional Water Supply Scheme in Co Wexford are experiencing supply disruptions due to a suspected burst pipe in the area.
Irish Water and Wexford County Council are assessing the situation and will begin work to repair the burst as soon as it safe to do so. If alternative water supplies are needed, they will be mobilised after the red weather warning has lifted.
Irish Water working in partnership with Wexford County Council would like to apologise to customers for the inconvenience this is causing.
