THERE HAVE BEEN rows about costs, consultants, meters and logos, but today is the day that Irish Water takes over the water network.

Previously, problems with water supply have been handled by local authorities, but as of today, that will end.

Irish Water will take over the water network today, meaning that issues with water supply, quality and waste water should be reported to them.

Business accounts, surface water drainage and flood management will remain the responsibility of local authorities.

Customers with problems can call 1890 278 278 or visit Irish Water’s website.
