Council says non-domestic water disconnections will continue

Donegal County Council has confirmed this afternoon that more non domestic water disconnections have taken place in recent weeks.

The council has been adopting a get tough policy, with officials saying that will continue for the rest of the year.

12 disconnections have taken place to date, and in a statement this afternoon, the council says further disconnections are planned in the weeks ahead.

The council says its campaign to disconnect supplies where no payment is received and no effort made to engage with the Council will continue for the rest of this year. This action, according to today's statement, has been necessary due to a relatively small number of consumers not paying their water bills or failing to adhere to payment agreements.

The statement reiterates that Donegal County Council is willing to engage with consumers who are having difficulty in paying, and payment through instalments can be facilitated.
