Use water wisely during hot weather - McGuigan
Sinn Féin MLA Philip McGuigan has urged people to use water wisely to help reduce the high demand on the water supply in the north which has come about due to the good weather in recent days.
The party’s Infrastructure spokesperson said:
“Due to the rise in hot weather over recent days, there has been a significant increase in water usage across the north, reaching levels of 700 million litres per day.
“I have been in regular contact with NI Water to seeking updates on the demands being placed on water supplies. They have ensured me that the water supply is protected, but they need public support in reducing demand.
“Whilst we want people to enjoy the hot weather, we would ask that everyone follows the advice given by NI Water by making the effort to use water wisely.”
