Most of the area is still experiencing reduced pressue, while some areas are still without water. Tankers are currently available at the following locations, but are subject to change:
- Belclare Park, Poppintree.
- Barry House, Finglas.
- St. Canices Church, Finglas.
The North West Area Manager has informed me that as the thaw continues to happen, further leaks are expected to be found. The Water Division are working flat out to identify and fix leaks as they arise. However, it will be months before all leaks are repaired due to the effect of the cold snap on the water pipes.
As it stands, most of the treated water resovoirs that serve the City are running exceptionally low, which will have a further effect on those lucky enough to have a water supply at the moment. Homes are being urged to only use water when necessary.
A stand pipe is available at the rear of the Finglas Office until 6pm each day. Anybody in need of more water can contact Brian Byrne at the local Finglas Office.
