No Compensation For Restaurants Over Water Shortages

By Publications Checkout

Dublin City Council say there will be no compensation for restaurant owners during the water shortages that started last week.

The Restaurants of Association of Ireland rebuked water chiefs over the crisis which they claim has costs businesses thousands.

However Dublin City Council engineer, Michael Phillips, put the blame on outlets for not stockpiling supplies of water. “Restaurants should have 24-hours of water stored. If you think back to the cold winter in 2010 and even to March this year, you would think people would carry out a mitigation exercise.” he said. Mr Phillips revealed that the Ballymore Eustace water treatment plant recovered two thirds of lost production. He also added that the restrictions should be lifted by this Thursday.
