Irish Water is working in partnership with Waterford City and County Council to safeguard water supply to customers in the following areas
Comeragh (Briska Lower)
Crough
Fews
Graiguerush
Kealfoun

Falling groundwater level is impacting on the supply as the borehole source struggles to keep up with the daily demand. Resolution of this issue is a high priority for Irish Water and
Waterford City & County Council and we are continuing to carry out operational works to minimise the impacts on customers.

It is critical that demand is maintained as low as possible and we are now asking for the assistance of customers. It is very important to continue to follow the HSE guidance on hand washing. However, simple water conservation efforts can have a big impact on reducing demand on the supply.

Turning off the tap while brushing your teeth and shaving can save up to 6 litres of water per minute. Taking a shower instead of a bath, or using a watering can rather than a hose when gardening can also make a big difference in water use.

We are also reminding people with responsibility for properties that are currently unoccupied to check for leaks and turn off water where it is not required.
