Water shortage in Dublin (!)

After ice and snow and storm there is a new challenge: A water shortage in Dublin! The fact is: The pipes are in such a bad condition and leaking everywhere, that the authorities have to shut down the water supply during night to save water. Difficult, if you would like to have a shower in the evening or morning!

This is a passage from Irish Time:

Restrictions on water supply will be put in place across the Dublin region and neighbouring counties from 7pm on Monday night until 7am on Tuesday, in order to reduce pressure on reservoirs.

Overnight restrictions on water will likely be in place for a number of weeks, Jerry Grant, managing director of Irish Water, has warned.

Speaking after the latest National Emergency Co-ordination Group (NECG) meeting, Mr Grant said Irish Water would be reducing water pressure from evening time “for the foreseeable future” in Dublin.
