Irish Water and Galway County Council are advising customers on Inis Oírr that essential overnight water restrictions in place on the public water supply have been lifted.
Water restrictions have been in effect on the Island nightly between 11pm and 7am since May and were introduced in order to conserve the low water resources on the Island.
Commenting, Tim O’Connor, Irish Water said: “The restrictions were necessary over the summer months to ensure a continuous daily water supply was available for residents and businesses for hygiene and other essential purposes.
Supplies were increased by a significant amount of tankering of water by sea from Rossaveel over the past three months.
Thankfully water reserves on the Island have recovered and are currently sufficient to ensure a continuous water supply into the autumn.
We would like to thank residents, businesses and visitors to the Island for their conservation efforts during the restrictions and we would also like to remind customers that it is important to continue to follow the HSE guidance on hand washing.”
