Council gives assurances water levels are adequate
DESPITE recent spells of warm weather, South Dublin County Council has stated that there are “no water supply issues of concern”.
The local authority stated this in response to a query by Fianna Fáil councillor Charlie O’Connor at a recent council meeting.
Cllr O’Connor asked for assurances from the council that the water supply available in the county would satisfy the needs of the county through the summer months.
In response, the council stated it holds fortnightly meetings with Irish Water and all the Greater Dublin Region local authorities to manage the water supply within the region.
“There are no water supply issues of concern at present or apparent over the next couple of months,” stated the council, “particularly noting that water levels at Pollaphuca and Bohernabreena reservoirs are satisfactory for this time of year.”
