The local authority says a hose pipe ban introduced two weeks ago in the Ennis area, North Clare and Tulla will remain in force until further notice.

Most water supply sources throughout the County remain at low levels while there is still a considerable soil moisture deficit.

According to David Timlin, Director of Environmental and Water Services: "While the weather forecast is for unsettled weather in the next few days, we still require significant rainfall in the medium term. The Council urges all consumers to continue to save water and be prudent in its use."

Mr. Timlin continued: "It is too early to relax our guard, even though the overall situation for water supply has improved slightly. I urge all public water supply and group water scheme consumers to use water wisely. The Council appreciates the efforts made by everybody to reduce consumption to date. Thanks to your co-operation, it has not been necessary to impose significant shut-offs in any supplies in the past fortnight, other than for a small number of localised maintenance operations."
