NIGHT-TIME water restrictions are to be introduced in Fanore.

Restrictions come into effect from Tuesday night (June 6th) from 10pm until 6am on Wednesday morning and will continue for that duration for successive nights until reservoir levels stabilise.

Uisce Éireann confirmed the measures will come into effect for Fanore and surrounding areas. “This is due to operational issues and exceptionally high demand for water during the current warm weather conditions,” a spokesperson confirmed to The Clare Echo.

Customers in Craggagh, Crumlin, Dereen West, Fanore More, Fanore Beg, and surrounding areas will be affected. Uisce Éireann is continuing to tanker water to the reservoir to supplement supply.

An alternative water supply is in place at the car park of O’Donoghue’s pub in Fanore Village. Customers are reminded to use their own containers when taking water from the tanker and to boil water before consumption as a precautionary measure as per HSE advice.

Uisce Éireann’s Regional Operations Lead, Duane O’Brien said, “Uisce Éireann and Clare County Council engineers will continue to monitor water levels and work towards ensuring a water supply to customers is maintained where possible over the coming days. However, water restrictions are required overnight to give the affected reservoirs time to replenish.”.

“We would like to apologise to customers who are impacted by these restrictions and ask that people continue to conserve their water usage while we work to restore full supply to these affected areas,” O’Brien added.

Levels of all supplies will be monitored by Uisce Éireann over the coming weeks. Members of the public can report any leaks in the public water network by contacting Uisce Éireann 24/7 at 1800 278 278 or on water.ie.

Uisce Éireann are asking the public to help play their part in protecting essential water supplies for their local communities.
