The areas affected include Lahinch, Lisdoonvarna, Doolin, Liscannor, Ballagh-Cahersherkin and surrounding Group Water Supply schemes. "Thank you, we really appreciate your help".

Water suppliers then face fresh concern that water reserves could dry up, meaning they'll then struggle to ensure each household is getting such an increased supply.

Corporate Affairs Manager and water conservation expert Kate Gannon noted the importance of the ban, stating: "Imposing a Water Conservation Order is a measure that Irish Water now consider appropriate".

The order bans the use of water for non-essential activities like watering the garden or filling a paddling pool and will continue until the end of the month.

The general public are still permitted to water their plants when necessary during a hosepipe ban by using a watering can.

"The way we have preventative water in our reservoirs, the challenge is getting enough treat it to supply our customers".

United Utilities - which supplies Lancashire and the north west of England - says it may have to follow Northern Ireland Water and implement a hosepipe ban. The warmer temperatures are putting a strain on the use of water as many locals are opening the taps more frequently. Irish Water may review the scope of both over the coming weeks.

Schumer said that while Democrats don't control the Senate - Republicans have a 51-49 edge - most senators back abortion rights. Trump is expected to announce his pick from the list, which now comprises over 25 judges from across the country, on July 9.


Irish Water announced the ban will come into force from 8am, saying Ireland is trying to "manage with the summer".

When temperatures surged last weekend, the firm's daily supply exceeded 1.5 billion litres and although they have reported that reservoir levels in the region are almost three-quarters full and there are no current water supply shortages, they are urging people to carry out water-saving tips. Wider water restrictions may become unavoidable if the demand does not drop towards normal levels.

According to The Irish Times, the causes for the water shortage is due to the increasing water consumption levels and a change in weather patterns. Some may also already have water efficient systems in place, such as metering or water recycling systems.

In a further step created to help Severn Trent manage the water network, the council's parks team will avoid drawing any water during the peak morning and evening periods.
