Irish Water, working in partnership with Westmeath County County Council, wishes to advise customers supplied by Castlepollard Low-Level Public Water Supply Scheme of nighttime restrictions due to increased demand and a drop in reservoir levels. The restrictions will be in place on Tuesday 20 July from 11 pm to 6 am on Wednesday morning and from 11 pm on Wednesday 21 July until 6 am on Thursday morning. Customers are reminded that it may take 2-3 hours for the normal water supply to return to all customers following restoration time but it is important to continue to follow the HSE guidance on hand-washing.
The areas affected include Castlepollard, Delvin, Raharney, Coole, Drumcree, Whitehall, Bracklyn, and surrounding areas. Customers on the Castlepollard High-Level Scheme (Collinstown & Fore) and customers on the Low-Level Scheme served by the Ballinlough and Brownstown Reservoirs, including Clonmellon, Archerstown & Crowenstown, will not be affected. The nighttime restrictions are essential to ensure homes and businesses have sufficient supply during the daytime.
Irish Water understands the inconvenience of these restrictions and is working closely with our Local Authority partners to ensure there is an uninterrupted supply during daytime hours. Customers registered as vulnerable on this supply are being contacted.
