WITH water usage having increased during the Covid-19 lockdown, Donegal County Council is urging home owners to conserve more.
Since the lockdown measures were introduced in March, water use at home has increased by an average of 20 percent.
There has also been a prolonged dry spell in the last two months since Covid-19 took a hold.
Irish Water has asked people to be mindful of their consumption, particularly with the reopening of some businesses meaning a further rise in demand.
In a social media post, Donegal County Council says: “Let’s work together to #ConserveWater. Taking a shorter shower can save 10 litres of water per minute.”
