The ESB has confirmed that the flow of water down the River Shannon through Parteen Weir will remain at 375 cubic metres per second today (Thursday).
The levels in Lough Derg are monitored on a daily basis and ESB will advise if that flow is likely to increase. With further rain expected, the level of water flowing down the Shannon may increase over the next number of days.
This level of water flow is likely to lead to associated flooding of roads, land and property in the vicinity of the Shannon downstream of Parteen Weir, including the areas of Springfield, Montpellier, Castleconnell, Mountshannon (Annacotty) and the University of Limerick.
ESB is continuing to monitor the situation and is liaising with the relevant county councils.
