On 7th March 2018, I raised the issue of water shortages in Fingal directly with the Minister for the Environment. While we all understand the impact of the severe weather event – the lack of communication is simply not acceptable. The Minister has replied to say that Irish Water experts that most issues will be resolved by the end of the week except in the Greater Dublin Area. Minister confirmed that water restrictions will be in place for at least another week. He acknowledged that communication between Irish Water and residents can be improved – this has to happen.
People in Fingal deserve better than this from the government.
