Lough Derg water levels improve

There has been a big change for the better with the water levels situation on Lough Derg.

ESB advises that levels in Lough Derg have continued to fall overnight and that the flow of water through Parteen Weir will reduce to 230 cubic metres per second today (Tuesday). The situation will be reviewed again tomorrow.

However, 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 and is liaising with local councils.
