Intro Text 

Following the significant rainfall last night, Irish Water have confirmed to the Council that waste water overflows have occurred from their treatment plant network.

Accordingly dlr have now issued a bathing prohibition for Seapoint, Sandycove, 40ft, Killiney and Whiterock and these will be in place until 1800 Saturday 10th August.  The situation will be reviewed thereafter.

Testing has been undertaken early this morning. We will continue to assess the risk to water quality based on test results and information provided by Irish Water.   Bathing water results will be published here.  Water testing results are available approximately two days after sampling.

Written notices are currently being placed at all dlr bathing locations.

Keep up-to-date by visiting dlrcoco.ie or our social media accounts.
