Big drop in Lough Derg levels

Water levels in Lough Derg have continued to fall overnight and the flow through Parteen Weir will remain at 195 cubic metres per second today (Friday). The situation will be reviewed again tomorrow.

Any increases in the flow of water through the Weir, which will depend on actual rainfall in the Shannon catchment in the coming days, will be advised through the normal channels and by press release.

This level of water flow will continue to have associated flooding to land and property in the vicinity of the Shannon downstream of Parteen Weir including the areas of Springfield, Montpelier, Castleconnell, Mountshannon (Annacotty) and the University of Limerick. Other areas between Parteen Weir and Limerick may also be vulnerable to flooding due to local issues.

ESB is continuing to monitor the situation in consultation with the local authorities.
