Demand for water right across Co Galway is increasing and as a result Irish Water, working in partnership with Galway County Council, will be imposing night time restrictions on the Ballyconneely Water Treatment Plant serving the Ballyconneely and Foreglass areas from 11pm to 7am for the foreseeable future. This is because demand on this scheme is now exceeding supply.
Due to a major increase in demand, supply to Clarenbridge Water Tower is not sufficient to meet demand and customers in Clarinbridge, Kilcolgan, Roveagh, Ballinderreen and Tyrone Group Water Scheme are urged to conserve water. Night-time restrictions will be imposed if the situation does not improve.
Water restrictions are also in place in Inis Oirr nightly from 11pm to 7am.
Irish Water is appealing to the Galway public, particularly people working and living in Dunmore/Glenamaddy, Kilkerrin/Moylough, Ballygar, Ballymoe, Williamstown, Tuam, Athenry, Oranmore, Tir an Fhia, Letterfrack, Leitir Mór, Carraroe, and Ballinasloe to conserve water while the prolonged dry spell that has been predicted by Met Éireann, continues.
Meanwhile Irish Water and Roscommon County Council are monitoring all supplies across the county on a daily basis and the two at-risk schemes that have been identified are the Castlerea and Grangemore/Cavetown public water supplies. Customers on these supplies are urged to conserve water wherever possible.
