Flow of water downstream from Parteen Weir to remain at 230 cumecs today, Friday 29th January

Notification from ESB - 29 January 2016 - 12:15 pm 

ESB advises that levels in Lough Derg have increased marginally overnight and that the flow of water through Parteen Weir will remain at 230 cumecs (cubic metres per second) today Friday 29th January 2016. This follows yesterday’s increase from 195 cumecs. The situation will be reviewed again tomorrow.

This level of water flow will continue to have associated flooding to land and property in the vicinity of the Shannon downstream of Parteen Weir including the areas of Springfield, Montpelier, Castleconnell, Mountshannon (Annacotty) and the University of Limerick. Note that other areas between Parteen Weir and Limerick may also be vulnerable to flooding due to local issues.

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