Irish Water and FCC working on water works in Garristown

Irish Water is working with Fingal County Council to restore normal water supply to customers in parts of Garristown.

High demand for water has led to a drop in treated drinking water levels in the Garristown reservoir, says the water authority.

“In order to minimise the impact on customers Irish Water and Fingal County Council have reconfigured the network in order to allow the Garristown reservoir to refill,” it says.

Customers in the following areas may be impacted by lower than normal water pressure and in some instances, particularly on higher ground, may experience intermittent water outages; Ballymadun; Garristown; Tobergregan; Baldwinstown and surrounding areas.

This supply disruption may last through the weekend.

Speaking about the refilling of the Garristown reservoir, Tselo Tlou, Irish Water said: “Irish Water is appealing to all customers to conserve water as the Garristown reservoir refills.

“While handwashing remains a priority, simple water conservation efforts can have a big impact on reducing demand on the supply.

“Turning off the tap while brushing your teeth and shaving can save up to 6 litres of water per minute.

“Taking a shower instead of a bath or using a watering can rather than a hose when gardening can also make a big difference in water use.”

Irish Water is working at this time, with our Local Authority partners, contractors and others to safeguard the health and well-being of both staff and the public and to ensure the continuity of critical drinking water and wastewater services.

Irish Water would like to remind people to follow the HSE COVID-19 advice and ensure frequent handwashing.
