Six Week Hosepipe Ban Lifted Early Due To Recent Rainfaill

Irish Water says it's lifting the water conservation order following recent heavy rainfall and improving river and ground water conditions.

It's been in effect since June 9th, when 27 of Irish Water’s 900 drinking water schemes were in drought.

Irish Water says after a review of data, along with the latest information from Met Éireann, the OPW and the EPA, it's now in a position to lift the ban.
