More bad news for water supplies in Malahide/Portmarnock

Thursday, September 9, 2010

Works were carried out last week to try to locate a major underground leak on the water supply network in the Malahide/Portmarnock area. Our crews narrowed down the search area to approximately 1km of pipeline and postponed further works until now.

There will be disruption to the water supply in the Malahide/Portmarnock area tonight between midnight and 5am as our crews will be “stepping” the area in an effort to locate the leak. If the leak is located tonight a decision will be made on whether to carry out the repairs tomorrow or postpone them to a later date. This decision will depend on the severity of the leak and whether or not there is a threat to the reservoir level in the short term.

If the leak is not located tonight, further step testing will be required after the weekend.

Further information will be provided tomorrow with regard to the outcome of tonight’s step testing process.
