Notification from ESB: Level of Water Discharge downstream of Parteen Weir

Wednesday 9 December 2015, 11:45 am

ESB advises that the flow of water down the River Shannon through Parteen Weir will remain at 375 cumecs (cubic metres per second) today.

The levels in Lough Derg are monitored on a daily basis and ESB will advise if that flow is likely to increase. There is further bad weather forecast and so 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, Castle Connell, Mountshannon (Annacotty) and the University of Limerick.

ESB is continuing to monitor the situation and is liaising with the relevant County Councils.
