Nightly water restrictions for Mountbolus from 10pm until 6am starting tonight, Monday, 8th October, until further notice

Irish Water wishes to advise customers in Mountbolus, Co Offaly that restrictions will be in place on their water supply from 10pm until 6am nightly, starting tonight, Monday, October 8th.


Due to seasonal low ground water levels, and following the record summer drought conditions, water levels in the well supplying the Mountbolus Public Water Supply Scheme are very low.


Irish Water, working with our partners in Offaly County Council, are maintaining water supply to customers by tankering drinking water supplies to the reservoir serving the area. However, to ensure there is adequate water in the reservoir each morning, it is necessary to impose restrictions nightly between 10pm and 6am until further notice.


Irish Water asks that customers be conscious of their water use, and conserve water where possible. The public are asked to report any leaks to Irish Water on 1850 278 278.


Irish Water thanks customers for their cooperation and patience during these necessary restrictions.
