Irish Water has issued guidance on where and when water tankers and stand pipes will be operating in the Louth/east Meath areas during the current water crisis.
According to the utility, areas in Drogheda are receiving a “rolling water supply” to ensure that at some stage households will find their water supply restored, if only for a few hours, over the coming days.
In addition some 33 tankers are filling reservoirs and 86 stationary water containers for distribution to locals.
Louth County Council is also organising 8,000, five and 10 litre foldable water containers are being delivered to Louth County Council and Meath County Council for distribution to the public.
Further water tankers and stationary water containers are being sourced to supplement demand.
Irish Water said it is liaising with Northern Ireland Water and local authorities across the country to provide water tankers and service to Our Lady of Lourdes hospital in Drogheda has been prioritised.
The supply to the hospital also includes Drogheda’s commercial centre, taking 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.
All hospitals, nursing homes and other residential centres for vulnerable users have contingency water supply arrangements in place, and will receive a water supply throughout the day.
