Irish Water Seek Army Aid For Water Shortage Crisis

Northern Ireland Water has dispatched tankers to help transport water to those affected in the Drogheda and surrounding areas.

The water outages in Louth and Meath are the biggest crisis Irish Water has faced, Minister for Local Government Eoghan Murphy said on Tuesday evening as he expressed "complete confidence" in its management.

Water tankers and containers have also been mobilised across the country to replenish water supplies.

Repairs are now underway and supply should be restored by Thursday - but businesses in the area are struggling to cope in the meantime. Irish Water said that it had been unable to fimd a suitable replacement at any of its storage facilities or in the UK. Reservoir levels have also been left "critically low".

A programme of rationing remains in place in Drogheda town, Clogherhead and Termonfeckin to help manage the remaining water resources in the area.

Thousands of householders and businesses in the Republic of Ireland are still without water on Sunday due to a burst water main affecting parts of County Louth and County Meath.

Irish Water have also stated that supply is also being maintained to the commercial centre in Drogheda town in the Mell area, Donore Road, Marley's Lane, Cement Road, Ballsgrove, Marian Park, Crosslanes, and some adjoining estates in the vicinity of these locations.

However a spokesperson for company has said that it will be necessary to return the system to full pressure "very gradually" in order to prevent further bursts at other vulnerable points in the network - meaning many residents may not have access to running water until the weekend.
