ESB Notification: Flow from Inniscarra Dam to increase to 250 cumecs by midday 30 December

ESB advises that, due to very substantial rainfall overnight associated with Storm Frank, flows from Inniscarra Dam will increase to 250 cumecs (cubic metres per second) between 9am and midday today 30th December. Based on the rain forecast for the coming days, this may need increase above 250 cumecs later today or tomorrow.

This level of flow (250 cumecs) will lead to increased flooding downstream from the Inniscarra Dam.

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.

Note: This is higher than the level of flow (180 cumecs) yesterday and between the 6 and 12 December from the Inniscarra Dam following Storm Desmond.
