Water Meter Installations Cause Leaks in Balbriggan!

May 3, 2014 0

We were contacted by a local resident this week to say that a water meter had been installed outside his house and since the installation a steady flow of water has been pouring from the said location.

The Irish Water website states: (to name but a few!)

  • Water is a valuable resource but it is expensive to deliver. It is costing €1.2 billion every year to run the public water system, with €1 billion of this funding coming from the Exchequer. This current funding model is no longer sustainable. In addition our infrastructure is badly in need of an overhaul.
  • Despite the good work of the Local Authorities, lack of investment has given rise to weaknesses in the water system infrastructure resulting in high leakage rates, varying quality standards and disruptions to supply. The new funding model, based on revenue collection and reinvestment, will ensure the public water system can meet the challenges of the future and deliver standards we can all be proud of.
  • Reduced water consumption will help combat climate change and ensure greater security of supply in areas where there are deficits.

This photos below show that Irish Water is clearly not practicing what they preach and they need to up their game if they are to achieve the objectives that they have set for themselves!
