‘The lack of info is re­ally an­noy­ing’

Bray People - - NEWS -

GAYE WEL­DON and her fam­ily are just one of a num­ber of fam­i­lies in North Wick­low who have lit­tle or no wa­ter since last week.

'Our wa­ter was turned off last Thurs­day. It went in the mid­dle of a shower and we con­tacted the plumber and it was only then we re­alised there was no wa­ter sup­ply. We've been told it's be­cause of the al­gae in the reser­voir and there's a wa­ter tanker down the road now where we have to get wa­ter,’ she said.

Gaye, from Glen­cor­mac, said there are two el­derly cou­ples in her im­me­di­ate area be­ing af­fected, as well as fam­i­lies with young chil­dren.

' When we get up in the morn­ing there's been a drib­ble of wa­ter through­out the night and there's enough for two flushes of the toi­let and one two minute shower. There's five of us so we are re­ly­ing on friends, fam­ily and wa­ter we draw from the tanker. It's ridicu­lous. The lack of in­for­ma­tion is re­ally an­noy­ing. We re­ceived no no­ti­fi­ca­tion un­til the wa­ter was cut off.’
