Levels in Lough Derg continue to drop and the flow of water through Parteen Weir will further reduce to 335 cubic metres per second today (Wednesday), according to ESB Networks. This follows a reduction in flow to 370 cumecs yesterday afternoon. The situation will be reviewed again tomorrow.
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 remain vulnerable to flooding due to local issues.
ESB is continuing to monitor the situation and is liaising with the local authorities.
