Water Main Burst Pipe On Main Street, Swords
Watermain Burst, Main Street, Swords
Traffic Management Plan–30” watermain Burst outside
Fingal Café, Main Street, Swords
There is a serious burst on the 30” Watermain on Main Street, Swords in the vicinity
of Fingal Café, losing a significant amount of water with the potential consequence of either an eruption or subsidence.
As a result urgent repairs need to be carried out.
It is intended to commence this work at 7pm approximately on Tuesday
5th November and works will continue until Thursday 7th November. Because of the location of the watermain it will be
necessary to close Main Street to vehicular access and parking, from the Junction of Chapel Lane to the Junction of Malahide
Road for the duration of the works. Parking restrictions will apply from 3pm on Tuesday.
Alternative routes to access
Swords are posted under our Traffic Management Plan.

A Message From Fingal County Council - Water Dept.
Greater Fingal Area:Including the Swords Area.
Because of water issues in the Greater Dublin Area it will be necessary to introduce some severe water pressure restrictions
in the Fingal area. These restrictions will take place between the hours of 8.00pm to 7.00am on a daily basis. Some consumers
in the Fingal Area may experience total water loss.
Consumers are requested to conserve water
as much as possible and especially not to use washing machines, dishwashers, showers etc. during the hours of restriction.
If water is conserved, water tank storage on premises should be adequate.
We apologise to consumers for any inconvenience
caused by this disruption.Wednesday 30th October 2013 : 17.35
The above message
from the council does not say which areas will be effected but I'm sure you'll find out when the tap stops working. It also
does not say how long the restrictions will last but according to Dublin City Council it will be until Monday the 4th of November
at the earliest.
