Over the Christmas holiday period Louth Local Authorities staff will continue to monitor water consumption in all areas of the county and to manage the networks to ensure in so far as possible that supplies to the Public are maintained. Staff will be working over the holiday period on a countywide basis on producing water, network management and emergency repair works.
The extended period of sub zero temperatures has brought with it uncharacteristic challenges to maintaining water supplies in some areas. While the Local Authority continues to manage same the assistance and cooperation of the general public in reporting bursts and leaks to our lo-call number 1890 202 303 and or following the hints for Advice on Burst Pipes and Advice on Frozen Pipes is greatly appreciated. Owners of commercial outlets or premises that will be unoccupied over the holiday period are requested to inspect such premises for leaks and bursts particularly as the thaw sets in.
The Local Authority has in place measures to facilitate access to water supplies for affected householders and details of these are listed on the web site.
