Irish Water Says It Is Increasingly Likely It Will Impose A Ban On Hose Pipe Use.

: 06/01/2020 - 17:01

Irish Water says it's looking increasingly likely that a hosepipe ban will have to be put in place after an increased demand on water.

It says drought conditions are also deteriorating.

The utility says because of the ongoing Covid-19 crisis handwashing and hygiene remain critically important.

It's urging the public to choose handwashing over power washing, as domestic water usage increased by an average of 20%.

This is because more people were staying at home in response to the Covid-19 crisis.
