Water supplies recovering well following burst main on the Kerry Central Regional WSS

04 August 2021

Irish Water and Kerry County Council are continuing their work to restore water supply levels across the Kerry Central Regional Water Supply Scheme. Water levels across the network and reservoirs continue to recover well at this time with normal supply having returned to most customers.

Irish Water is appealing to the public to conserve water and to only use what they need whilst continuing to adhere to public health advice regarding COVID-19. This will help with the ongoing restoration of water supply and help reservoir levels continue to refill across the county so that daytime water supply can be maintained. Some night-time restrictions may be needed over the coming days.

Speaking about the repair works, Anna Brosnan, Irish Water said: “The recovery of water supply is continuing to progress well across the networks and reservoirs today. We want to ask everyone to continue to conserve water and help with the recovery phase.

In particular, we are asking the public to refrain from activities that use a large amount of water such as using power washers or watering gardens with a hose. We are also appealing to homes, businesses and those responsible for unoccupied buildings to check for leaks whilst adhering to current public health regulations and advice, to turn off water where it is not needed and report leaks they see on the public network to us.

There are ways to conserve water that will not impact on hygiene or handwashing. Simple water conservation efforts can have a big impact on reducing demand on the supply such as not running taps needlessly, taking showers instead of baths and to postpone using dishwashers and washing machines where possible. We are also reminding people with responsibility for properties that are currently unoccupied to check for leaks and turn off water where it is not required. There are lots more tips on how to conserve water in your home on the Conservation section of our website.

There is also a possibility that some customers may have airlocks in their internal plumbing. For advice on how to deal with airlocks please visit our page How to check for and clear internal airlocks on the internal airlocks section of our website.

It is expected that water supply will begin to return to customers over the course of the day.

In the meantime Irish Water has prioritised water supply to hospitals in the area. Irish Water and Kerry County Council are mobilising alternative water supplies at the above locations and these will be available throughout the affected areas from approximately 12 noon today.
