Irish Water pledges support to drought-stricken farmers

Irish Water pledges support to drought-stricken farmers

These restrictions will continue for the foreseeable future and both Irish Water and Limerick County Council will continue to monitor the schemes carefully, it said.

Chief Executive Sara Venning thanked some local businesses who lent NI Water their tankers over the weekend to help their efforts to meet demand.

"Although peak temperatures may not be quite as high as we have seen this week, we will still see temperatures widely in the mid to high 20s".

It is understood that Irish Water can extend the ban if they deem it necessary.

Watering your lawn, washing the auto or other vehicles and filling a swimming pool, pond or fountain are all off limits across Northern Ireland.

Similar drought orders have been introduced in Northern Ireland and in British water utilities and operate by mobilizing public support for responsible behavior.

The average person in the United Kingdom uses 150 litres of water a day, and so this is expected to increase by a huge 50% during a heatwave like we're having now.

Chelsea reject Barcelona £50m for Brazilian World Cup star
The Belgian backup stopper hasn't featured at the World Cup and hasn't played a league game for the Reds since New Year's Day. Willian is considered to be a replacement for Andres Iniesta, who left the club for Japanese side Vissel Kobe.

Brazil through to the quarter-finals
One of the key differences since Tite took over two years ago has been that Brazil try to win the ball cleanly in midfield. Brazil managed to give away 7 against Germany in the last World Cup game before the edition in Russian Federation .

The call follows Irish Water's decision to issue a hose pipe ban across the greater Dublin area.

The challenge is that demand for water is unprecedented.

Martin Lunn, head of technical strategy for Northumbrian Water, said: "Our water supplies remain healthy at this time, and we are keeping a close eye on this as the warm weather continues". She said: "It's not the problem we don't have the water in our reservoirs, we do".

Also speaking on Morning Ireland, IFA president Joe Healy said: "We met with Irish Water to ensure that that would happen because animal welfare is paramount here and, in relation to the growth, the extra cost that's being associated here". Business customers now are not impacted as it is recognised they rely on water use for their livelihood and may already have water efficient systems in place eg, metering or water re-cycling systems. The hosepipe ban that was put into place has helped reduce this to 575 million litres a day.

Irish Water's Corporate Affairs Manager is Kate Gannon.

This Tuesday, Irish Water made an urgent appeal to Limerick customers to continue conserving water during the unprecedented dry spell.
