  • A woman out for a morning jog yesterday along the river Itchen near Winchester Hampshire as the summer heat wave continues to bring sunshine and high temperatures to much of the UK and utility companies warn of potential water shortages

"Today is the first day of the hose pipe ban in the Greater Dublin Area and we ask everyone to play their part in the areas included in the ban and across the country to conserve water as much as possible over the weeks and months".

The Utility has also been in touch with large commercial users who have committed to conserve water and we thank them for their efforts and encourage all users of water to be mindful of how they can reduce their overall consumption.

A number of homes in Lurgan, Co Armagh and Coalisland, Co Tyrone as well as some other areas - particularly those that are isolated and high lying, have experienced lower pressure and supply failures.

Fully load your dishwasher and washing machine every time you use it.

"We urgently need your help and support to avoid a hosepipe ban". Some may also already have water efficient systems in place, such as metering or water recycling systems.

"We can all take simple steps to reduce the amount of water we use, and it is important that the council leads by example".

"Do you really need to use the hosepipe or the sprinkler in the garden?"

A hosepipe ban is on the horizon if hot weather continues, a water firm has warned.

Be water wise around peak times: 7 - 9am and 5 - 8pm are the peak times for showering and bathing. A statement that Capetonians are familiar with, take a two minute shower and no baths not to forget "if its yellow, let it mellow". Please turn off the tap when you are brushing your teeth or shaving.

Meanwhile, speaking earlier this week, ICMSA president Pat McCormack commented on the arrangement in place with Irish Water. However, it has called for staff and students to only use water when absolutely necessary. You can still water your garden using a good old fashioned watering can.

High levels of sunlight means significant evaporation levels on water sources.
