Works underway to resolve supply issues at Palmerstown Reservoir

21 June 2021

Irish Water is working with Fingal County Council to restore normal water supply to customers supplied by Palmerstown reservoir following an interruption in the supply to the reservoir. Due to high demand the water level in the Palmerstown reservoir has not fully recovered.

In order to allow levels to recover fully, customers in the following areas may experience low water pressure and in some instances water outage throughout today and overnight until 9am tomorrow morning Tuesday 22 June; Oberstown; Man O War; Courtlough and surrounding areas.

An Alternative Water Supply (IBC Container) is in place at Man O War Public House carpark. While every effort to ensure that the alternative drinking water supply provided, including the IBC and dispensing tap, are adequately disinfected people are advised to boil this water before use.

Irish Water is working at this time, with our Local Authority partners, contractors and others to safeguard the health and well-being of both staff and the public and to ensure the continuity of critical drinking water and wastewater services. Irish Water would like to remind people to follow the HSE COVID-19 advice and ensure frequent handwashing.

Irish Water and Fingal County Council regrets any inconvenience caused. Our customer care helpline is open 24/7 on 1800 278 278 and customers can also contact us on Twitter @IWCare with any queries.  For updates please see the Supply and Service Updates section of our website.
