Dublin Water Supplies Restricted Due to Cold Weather

Disruptions to water supplies to homes and businesses supplied by the greater Dublin water reservoirs, which includes the four Dublin local authorities and parts of Wicklow and Kildare, are set to continue until next week at least.  This is due to low levels in supply reservoirs caused by unprecedented demand caused by the very cold weather during the past two weeks .  With another cold spell forecast for the next six days many supply zones will be cut off from 7pm to 7am  while others will be subject to pressure reductions leading to a possible loss of water, especially to storage tanks.  The cuts have been rotated amongst the 19 City supply zones and those serving surburbs and outlying towns.  However, many businesses, especially restaurants and cafes are finding it hard to survive.
