    Drinking water is a scarce commodity essential to the City and the health of its citizens. Every day 540 million litres of high quality drinking water is produced and supplied to 1.5 million customers in the Dublin Region.

    Dublin City Council's Water Services Division is responsible for supplying 70% of this water and the balance is being provided by Fingal County Council.

    Water is collected from the Dublin and Wicklow mountains for treatment at the City Council's three water treatment plants at Ballymore Eustace, Roundwood and Ballyboden and at the Fingal County Council plant at Leixlip.

    It is then distributed to customers in Dublin City and in the South Dublin, Dun Laoghaire Rathdown, Fingal, Kildare and Wicklow County Council areas through a network of service reservoirs and over 7,000 km of pipes of which 2,400 km are the responsibility of Dublin City Council.

    Water is a precious resource and should be used sparingly. Information about saving water can be found online at www.taptips.ie and see the current water conservation message.
