Water Conservation Message
Dublin City Council would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our Customers for conserving water over the past few months which has resulted in reduced demand. However we are appealing to the public and businesses to continue to conserve water and minimise usage. With the winter fast approaching now is the time to get winter ready. See www.winterready.ie for details.
You do not have to make major lifestyle changes to make a difference. By making small changes to some of your daily activities we can significantly reduce the volume of water we waste. For advice on how to conserve water see www.taptips.ie
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.
On occasion it may be necessary to carry out water quality monitoring or repair and maintenance work at your property. This may require our employees to gain access to your property. Unfortunately bogus callers can sometimes call to your property claiming to be from Dublin City Council’s Water Services. Find out how to identify bogus callers
Water is a precious resource and should be used sparingly. Information about saving water can be found online at www.taptips.ie
