Irish Water working in partnership with Mayo County Council is advising customers in Co Mayo that due to the extremely cold weather conditions and exceptionally high usage, water treatment plants are struggling to keep up with water supply demands.
Customers are being asked to conserve water to avoid reservoirs emptying and water pressure to homes and businesses being affected.
High demand is being registered on the Achill, Mulranny, Erris, Louisburgh, Ballina, Castlebar and Lough Mask water supply schemes due to, more than likely, taps being left running in peoples’ homes.
Irish Water is urging customers to conserve water by not running dishwashers or washing machines where possible and taking showers instead of baths.
Information on dealing with frozen pipes is available on www.water.ie and water supply updates are available at www.water.ie/water-supply/supply-and-service-update/
Irish Water and Mayo County Council would like to thank customers in advance for their co-operation in conserving water at this critical time.
