Flow of water downstream from Parteen Weir to remain at 265 cumecs today, 31st January

Notification from ESB - Sunday 31st January 2016, 11:30am 

ESB advises that levels in Lough Derg have stabilised in the past 24 hours and that the flow of water through Parteen Weir will remain at 265 cumecs (cubic metres per second) today Sunday 31st January 2016. The situation will be reviewed again tomorrow.

This level of water flow will continue to lead to flooding of 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 Local Authorities.
