ESB to release water at Parteen Weir

Limerick City and County Council has been informed by the ESB of plans for further significant releases of water from Parteen Weir.

The volume of water planned for release is at a level which is likely to cause flooding of roads and could also potentially affect property in flood-prone locations, according to the council. The areas most at risk of experiencing flooding are Montpelier, Castleconnell and the Mountshannon Road, Lisnagry.

The local authority is liaising with householders in these areas that were affected by the 2009 flood and is putting additional measures in place to help alleviate the effects of flooding.

At this time, there is no expectation of flooding in Limerick City but the council is monitoring the situation on an ongoing basis.

The council is advising property owners in flood-prone locations, and motorists, to exercise vigilance over the coming days. The Council is also calling on property owners and landowners to ensure that drains and gullies on their property are kept clear to assist in the run-off of water.

Flooding advice is available on www.flooding.ie.
