Works underway to restore water supply to Malahide and Portmarnock
Irish Water is working with Fingal County Council to restore water supply in parts of Malahide and Portmarnock as water levels in the Malahide reservoir are replenishing.
Properties in the following areas may be impacted by disruption to their supply while the reservoir levels replenish; areas extending from east of the railway line in Malahide to Portmarnock and to Drimnigh woods and to Carrickhill and surrounding areas.
It is expected that normal water supply will begin to be restored for impacted customers from 8pm this evening and it may take until 11pm for normal water pressure to be restored to all impacted customers.
Separately water supply is currently being restored to other areas impacted by earlier works at the Malahide Road/Mountgorry Way Roundabout that were being carried as part of the Malahide water supply scheme.
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 understands the inconvenience when water supply is interrupted and thanks customers for their patience while we work to resolve the matter and restore normal supply to all customers. Irish Water and Fingal County Council regrets any inconvenience caused. Our customer care helpline is open 24/7 on 1850 278 278 and customers can also contact us on Twitter @IWCare with any queries.
