Irish Water can do a special read of water meters if households or businesses are wasting water. A hosepipe ban kicks in tomorrow in the Greater Dublin area and could be extended to other areas.
The company has confirmed they do check meters to monitor usage and find leaks. But they aren’t setting out to catch people so they can fine or prosecute them during the water conservation period.
Legislation allows the company to monitor both households and businesses which may be in breach of the ban.
