Water Conservation - Press Release


Water Conservation

Kildare County Council are appealing to the public and the business community to conserve water and to minimise usage. The lower than average rainfall in recent months has led to a reduction in the volume of raw water available for treatment from the reservoir at Poulaphouca, which is the main source of supply for County Kildare.

While there is no immediate need to cut back on the water supply, restrictions may however be unavoidable should the dry spell continue and should demand for water increase during the summer period.

Kildare County Council together with the Greater Dublin Regional Authorities are monitoring the situation on a weekly basis and adequate notice will be given to all consumers should the introduction of restrictions to the public water supply be deemed necessary.

Your understanding of the current situation and continued co-operation is much appreciated.

For advice on how to conserve water consumers should view the website.
