This is counter productive and will run down available water in storage Burst mains / leakage – any suspected leaks on watermains or wastage should be reported to the County Council at your local public services centre.  Vacant properties – please continue to check vacant properties where internal plumbing may be damaged by freezing conditions. Ideally the water supply to vacant buildings should be turned off and systems drained of all water, e.g. where members of the public who are going on holiday during the coming months, we would recommend that they turn off the water supply to their premises and drain all water out of the system before leaving the property. Farming Community – we ask that you check all field connections and turn off leaking drinking troughs. This has proven to be a serious problem in rural areas in recent years. We also ask for your assistance in checking for burst pipes in farm buildings and burst hoses laying over ground. Essentially anywhere on the farm that water may be lost Caravan Parks – another area that is often remote where plumbing may be exposed and water losses can be slow to appear, we appeal to all caravan park owners to turn off the water supply to eliminate wastage. Once again the co-operation of every community is required if we are to avert widespread shortages in water supplies  Donegal County Council continue to record an increase in demand on a number of water supplies in the county during the current cold weather conditions.
