A Donegal County Councillor has called for an urgent response to water supply issues from the Ardsbeg Water Treatment Plant.
The Gortahork/Falcarragh area has experienced water problems since a lightning strike hit the plant on 21st December.
Councillor Michael McClafferty is warning that reservoir levels have been dangerously low this week.
The Falcarragh representative called on Irish Water to send a technician to the plant to repair damages to the computer system.
He said the ongoing issues are unacceptable.
“There is only 40cms left in the reservoir, this is not good enough at all. All weekend water staff had to sit Saturday and Sunday switching on and off buttons,” Cllr McClafferty wrote.
Cllr McClafferty said the computer system has been jeopardised to the extent that a relevant technician must visit “to spend whatever time necessary in the Gortahork plant to go through it with a fine tooth comb. Or else there will be no water system as it will collapse as is envisaged already to happen any minute soon.”
Cllr McClafferty is also seeking a meeting between Irish Water and local councillors on the issues and on the ongoing problems at the Lettermacaward Water Treatment Plant.
“I hope to hear about a meeting ASAP as well as a fixing plan,” Cllr McClafferty said.
