Disruption to Dublin City Water Supply - Friday 28th February 2014 until Sunday, March 2nd 2014

Printer-friendly version

Dublin City Council regrets to advise that due a break on a large water distribution main (1000mm) off James St, customers in areas of the City will experience disruption to water supply from today until Sunday 2nd March 2014. This will result in reduced pressures and the possibility of temporary water loss due to necessary water shutdowns, which will facilitate repair of the main.

The areas most likely to be worst affected include:

  • North of the Liffey : Cabra; Glasnevin; Phibsboro; Drumcondra; parts of Doneycarney; Santry and parts of Beaumont;
  • South of the Liffey: Heuston area south to Thomas St and east to Bridgefoot St.

Work began on the repairs at 6.30am this morning and is likely to continue well into Sunday evening.

If required, water tankers will be made available for customers. Locations of tankers will be detailed in updates throughout the weekend, through press releases, on our website at www.dublincity.ie  and on Twitter @DubCityCouncil.

Dublin City Council will endeavour to minimise the disruption and apologises for the inconvenience caused. Please restrict water usage during the disruption period and visit www.taptips.ie  for simple tips on how to conserve water without having an adverse impact on lifestyle.
