Council cuts off water supplies

Twenty non domestic water supplies have been disconnected/restricted by Donegal Co. Council over the past few weeks and a further 60 disconnections will take place in the coming weeks.

Yesterday Donegal County Council confirmed the disconnections stating the most recent cut offs took place in Letterkenny and Ardara with other planned for areas within the Letterkenny, Inishowen, Donegal, Glenties and Stranorlar Electoral Areas in the coming weeks.

A spokesperson for the council said: “These measures become necessary when customers do not engage proactively and meaningfully with the Council in relation to outstanding charges on their account.

“Both commercial businesses and agricultural supplies have been affected by the disconnections/restrictions and substantial charges will incur to reconnect

“The Council encourages and appeals to all customers in arrears to contact them at (074) 9153900.”

The spokesperson concluded that the County Council would like to thank the very many customers who paid their bills and actively engage with the Council in relation to their non domestic water account.
