ESB Notification: Discharge at Inniscarra Dam to remain at 150 cumecs

ESB advises that the discharge at Inniscarra Dam remains at 150 cumecs (cubic metres per second) as of today Monday 14 December.

The heavy rain during Storm Desmond increased water inflows significantly into the Lee Dam reservoirs at Inniscarra and Carrigadrohid.

This level of flow may have associated flooding of roads, land and property adjacent to the banks of the River Lee downstream of Inniscarra.

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