Information below is relevant until further updates are provided here or on our Supply and Service Updates section.

Homes and businesses across Mayo urged to conserve water

Uisce Éireann is working to restore normal water supply to a number of customers on the Westport Public Water Supply following power outages caused by Storm Isha. 

Customers south of Westport town in Aughagower, Lankill, Lanmore, Liscarney, Cushlough and those supplied by Brackloon Group Water Scheme are experiencing outages. 

Power has been restored in the area and dedicated water services crews have been mobilised and are working to restore normal water supply as quickly as possible. 

To support impacted customers, an alternative water supply is available in Aughagower. Customers are reminded to use their own containers when taking water from the tankers and to boil the water before consumption as a precautionary measure, as per Health Service Executive advice.

Colette Scahill, Water Operations Lead with Uisce Éireann thanked customers for their patience as crews work to restore normal water supply as quickly as possible. 

She also appealed to homes and businesses across the county to conserve water as Uisce Éireann recharges a number of supplies that experienced outages. 

"When water supplies return, we appeal to customers to help conserve water by not running taps needlessly, taking showers instead of baths and to postpone using dishwashers and washing machines where possible. This will help ensure a normal water supply returns to all customers as quicky as possible." 

Further information on water conservation is available on our Conservation section.
