Irish Water initiative to fix leaks sees 33% cut in water used in Tralee reservoir

An Irish Water initiative to fix leaks has resulted in a 33% cut in the amount of water used in a Tralee reservoir.

The Find and Fix Programme is a specially funded, capital project, which was set up to search for leaks in public water pipes, and repair them.

Tralee town has been the initial focus area of the programme in Kerry.

Following extensive works since 2018, the daily outflow from the Farmer’s Bridge reservoir, which serves the greater Tralee area, has dropped by 33% or by 5.8 million litres.
