Some areas of Leitrim may face water supply disruptions today

Low reservoir levels may cause supply disruptions in some areas today.

Irish Water working in partnership with Leitrim County Council is advising customers that due to the extremely cold weather conditions and exceptionally high usage, water treatment plants are struggling to keep up with water supply demands.

Customers are being asked to conserve water to avoid reservoirs emptying and water pressure to homes and businesses being affected.

Customers on the South Leitrim Water supply are advised that due to exceptionally high water demand and ongoing mechanical issues at the water treatment plant, they may experience loss of pressure and/or water outages today.

Repairs at the plant have been completed but customers in high lying areas may experience disruptions to their water supply today while the system fully recharges.
