Co. Tipp People Urged To Conserve Water


Concerns have been expressed by Irish water about the availability of water in the following areas over the coming months – namely the Galtee Regional Scheme, Carrick on Suir, Clonmel, Coalbrook and Glengar.
Irish Water is now asking people in Tipperary to be mindful of their water usage in the coming weeks as increased demand during the warmer weather and lower-than-average rainfall levels have caused levels to drop in local water sources.
Irish Water and Tipperary County Council are closely monitoring water levels and taking remedial measures to maintain normal supplies but the public is being asked to assist by taking some simple steps to reduce their water use. Irish water says the rain forecast over the coming days is not likely to have a significant impact on the volume of treated water available for supply. To help people do this customers of Irish Water can find an easy-to-use conservation calculator so they can work out how much water they are currently saving and how they can conserve even more. The free calculator is available on the Irish Water in addition to useful water saving tips.
