ESB Notification: Increased Discharges at Inniscarra Dam

ESB commenced spilling, at a rate of approximately 125 cumecs (cubic metres per second), at Inniscarra dam on Wednesday December 2nd. ESB has increased its discharge to 150 cumecs from Inniscarra Dam and will be increasing to 180 cumecs over the course of the day.

We expect to continue to spill at Inniscarra Dam over the coming week to draw down reservoir levels. There may be associated flooding of roads, land and property adjacent to the banks of the River Lee downstream of Inniscarra.

We are closely monitoring the situation and are in communication with the local authorities and response agencies in accordance with our normal operating procedures.
