Water Water Nowhere

Thousands of homes across Dublin could be without water this weekend

Repairs being carried out on a burst main at James Street could affect supply across the city this weekend.

THOUSANDS OF HOMES and businesses across Dublin could be without water this weekend following damage to a major distribution main.

Dublin City Council (DCC) has warned that due to repairs on the damaged pipe at James Street, many will experience reduced water pressure.

There could also be a temporary loss of supply.

DCC began repairing the damaged water main this morning at 6.30am, and work is expected to be completed this Sunday evening.

Areas of Glasnevin, Drumcondra, Phibsborough, and Cabra will be worst hit, with several areas across the city centre, including Mountjoy Square and St James’s Gate Brewery, also affected.

Officials have asked for customers to reduce their water usage over the weekend until repairs have been completed.

The council has also said that water tankers will be made available ‘if required’. Details will be posted online, and on Twitter.
