Dublin's Water Shortages Ease

Copyright: RTE News

 For the first time since the thaw water demand in the Greater Dublin area has dropped below production. The supply on the 1st January, 2011 (Happy New Year!) was 545 MLd while demand was at 522 MLd.  However, water restrictions will remain in place for at least another week to allow stored water supplies to recover, so for most of Dublin's population this will mean that supplies will be cut off from 18.00 to 7.00 each night.  The situation around the rest of the country continues to improve as leaks are detected and repaired.
