Dublin Water Restrictions To Continue Until 4 Nov

Water restrictions imposed in Dublin last night are expected to continue until Monday 4 November.

The restrictions, which cause low pressure and loss of supply, will be in place each evening from 8pm until 7am.

It is understood that the restrictions are the result of problems at Dublin's biggest water treatment plant, Ballymore Eustace.

The cause of the problem is not yet known, but DCC have said it believes the recent heavy rainfall has made the reservoir water more difficult to treat.
