Irish Water encouraging Shannonside locals to keep reporting leakages in systems

Irish Water is encouraging people to continue to report leaks within Shannonside water systems.

It’s continuing to prioritise its leakage reduction programme as 43% of all treated water is still lost or unaccounted for.

As well as teams operating ‘find and fix it’, projects, in Shannonside towns, the ‘first fix free’ scheme is also open to householders who discover leaks within their properties.

Georgina O’ Reilly, Operations Lead in Carrick on Shannon says they have saved up to 1 million litres of water through leakage reduction.
