Water tankers are being deployed again in Drogheda and surrounding areas of Co Louth, as well as parts of east Meath, as householders and businesses face another day of water disruption.
The areas have been without a water supply since last Friday because of a major burst on a large water main.
Irish Water says Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Drogheda has been prioritised to maintain supply to the hospital.
It says 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.
Irish Water has said repairs to the burst water main will be completed by Thursday at the earliest.
It has warned that even when the water main is repaired, it could take a number of days before full supply is restored.
Around 50,000 homes and businesses have been left without water since the water main in Staleen, Co Meath, burst last week.
The problem has led to severe disruption to the water supply in the northeast, particularly in the Drogheda area and parts of east Meath.
Water will continue to be transported from across the country today to help the thousands of households who are without water.
People are advised to bring their own containers to avail of the water at the temporary water stations at locations across the region.

Stameen on the Dublin Road
