Essential night-time restriction required in Trim to help reservoir levels recover

20 January 2022

Irish Water, working in partnership with Meath County Council, advise customers in Trim that, essential night-time restrictions are required tonight to help reservoir levels recover. This restriction is necessary following an electrical failure at Trim Water Treatment Plant over the weekend.

To help reservoir levels recover and maintain a sufficient water supply to homes and businesses during normal working hours, water supply will be restricted from 10pm tonight, Thursday 20 January, until 6am tomorrow morning. The following locations may experience reduced water pressure or disruption to their supply; Trim; Knightsbrook; Scurlockstown; Effernock; Carberstown; Blackfriary; Crowpark; Clonbun; Rathmolyon and surrounding areas.

It can take two to three hours following restriction for normal supply to be fully restored to all areas but, it is important to continue to follow the HSE guidance on hand-washing.

Speaking about the restriction, Michael Cunniffe, Irish Water said: “Irish Water understands the inconvenience the restriction may cause. The night-time restriction is necessary to ensure a daytime water supply is available for residents and businesses for hygiene and other essential purposes. We are continuing to work to resolve the issue at the plant so that the plant can reliably operate at full production capacity and we will continue to provide updates as the work progresses. During the day time, we are appealing 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. Further information on water conservation is available on our website at www.water/conserve.
