The water supply has been restored to all areas of the Greater Dublin Area from 6am this morning. Irish Water are aware of issues in the Dublin 6 region around Rathmines, Rathgar and Milltown as a result of network leaks. There are 22 specialist leak detection crews out across the Greater Dublin Area and 26 repair crews prioritising the most significant bursts and leaks first.

Due to the aftermath of Storm Emma, which has had a significant impact on the water network, pressure management will apply from 8pm tonight (Wed, 8th March) to 6am tomorrow in the Greater Dublin Area.

Rathgar/Rathmines/Milltown had no restrictions last night however the area has very high leakage which is causing recovery to be slow. Teams are on the ground looking for leaks.The requirement for weekend restrictions is being kept under review.
