Hosepipe ban put in place in South Tipperary

The ban will be in place until 13 August.

A HOSEPIPE BAN has been put in place in South Tipperary to preserve water supplies during the warm weather.

Local councillor Liam Ahearne of Fine Gael told that he was informed a hosepipe ban had been put in place, but indicated it was not unexpected.

“We have a problem in places with water,” he pointed out. According to Ahearne, water has been shut off in parts of South Tipperary from 9pm recently due to issues with water supply.

He said the hosepipe decision was due to the current spell of warm weather, and the fact the weather could remain warm for the next week.

Cllr Ahearne said he believes the council is going to monitor the situation and the weather.

The initial phase of the ban is for a period of four weeks, until 13 August.

This emergency notice hosepipe ban will be placed on all County Council, Town Councils and Borough Council supplies within the South Tipperary County Council Water Authority.
