WE’RE HEARING this lunchtime that the four Dublin local authorities – including the city council and the county councils of Fingal, South Dublin and Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown – will cut municipal water services from 7pm tonight until about 7am tomorrow morning, in an effort to conserve supplies after many householders began leaving taps running after the cold weather hit. The outage will affect an estimated 1.1 million people.

REPAIR WORK ON the damaged watermain at Marrowbone Lane, Dublin, has been completed. Dublin City Council said yesterday evening that normal supply should be restored to all areas by last night.

The pipe burst on Friday afternoon, leaving thousands of people without water as repair work was carried out.

Some areas in the north of the city were served fresh water via tankers.  The Swords Road, Beaumont Road, and Ballymun Road were all supplied with tankers until 7pm yesterday.

The council said that while some residents may have seen discoloured water coming through their taps, the water would clear as the water supply returned to normal. Residents are still urged to conserve their use of water to help normalise water pressure.
