Dublin Water Restriction Update - Monday 1st April

Water conservation Notice Monday 1st April 2013

Reductions in pressure and/or loss of supply throughout the entire city from the earlier start time of 7pm (Monday 1st April) to between 7am and 9am (Tuesday 2nd April) Due to the cooperation of our customers we managed to save a significant amount of water into storage over night.We are imposing water restrictions again tonight, starting at the earlier time of 7pm. We will continue to review and monitor the storage levels on an ongoing basis. Treated water storage is currently at an unsustainably low level. This is as a result of production problems at one of our water treatment plants. There is obviously no problem with storage levels of untreated/raw water and there is no problem with water quality of treated water. Storage levels of treated drinking water are below a normal operational level. In addition water demand is currently running higher than average due to the cold weather which has caused an increase in leakage. Our crews are repairing any breaks as they arise. To help us in this regard we would ask people to report any location where they see water rising or running.

In an effort to maintain storage we are asking consumers to assist us in maintaining adequate water supplies by restricting their use of water as much as possible. We will be reducing pressures throughout the system in order to conserve supplies. While we will try, as far as possible, to maintain pressures during peak demand periods, pressures will be reduced at other times. This will result in lower pressures and in some cases possible loss of supply.

People may notice reductions in pressure or loss of supply from 7pm to between 7am and 9am throughout the entire city.

Dublin City Council regrets any inconvenience caused by these restrictions and will do everything possible to minimise their scale and duration. Water is precious. Let’s conserve it.

  1. Thank you for sharing. Cost-effective solutions for flow back water treatment and produced water treatment will play and important role in the economics and environmental sustainability of unconventional oil and gas production.
