Heat sparks plea to conserve water

Dubliners were yesterday urged to conserve water after a surge in use during the recent hot weather.

Dublin City Council said that while there was not currently a shortage in the greater Dublin area, more consumption than usual would put a strain on supplies.

Current usage has increased by an extra 30 million litres on average per day since the warm weather started.
