On water supplies…
**Latest update: Wed 13 Jan at 1600**
Since Monday, I’ve been receiving calls from concerned constituents on the cuts or curtailments to water supplies in Dublin South. The latest information I have is as follows:
Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council:
Water supply to the Nutgrove area was turned off yesterday because of critically low water levels at the supply reservoir. The areas affected include:
Upper Churchtown Road
Oakdown / Nugent
DLR say that supply to this area is back ON, although problems remain in Hillside Drive , Landscape Road and Loreto areas and these are being investigated.
Water supply to Kilmacud Area including Mount Merrion, Stillorgan, Kilmacud, and Pine Valley has been turned back on this morning and continuous supply should be available until 7pm this evening, when it will be turned off again.
Water supply to the Stepaside area, including Cairnfort and Kellystown, has had to be turned off because of critically low water levels at the supply reservoir.
The water will be restored at 5pm this evening.
Sandyford Road and adjoining estates off it including Ballally (parts), Moreen and Kilcross estates, Ticknock Hill, Simons Ridge and adjoining estates will also be without water until 5pm this evening.

South Dublin County Council:
Water has been turned OFF until 5pm in the following areas:
SDCC say that water pressures in most areas have returned to normal. Any residents who still have no water have been asked to remain patient! There are burst water mains in Knocklyon and the situation is being investigated at the moment. However, it should NOT affect local water supplies.
Supplies in Ballyboden and Edmondstown have been cut off because of low levels in the reservoirs. It is hoped to turn the water back on between 5 pm and 7 pm this evening.
SDCC will be turning supplies OFF gradually from 4pm this evening in the following areas.
All areas will have a full water supply by mid-morning tomorrow.
