The reservoirs are empty!

So despite having quite alot of precipitation it seems the system cannot cope and the statement released by NI Water confirms that large parts of Belfast are without water as the reservoirs are nearly empty.

Having tried and failed to get unto the NI Water website i’m still non the wiser as to if and when the water will be back on.

From what i can gather on facebook BT5 – BT12 is without water but looking at the statement linked above BT7 appears to have water though i have friends saying otherwise.

In the interest of getting a broader picture use the comments section to add post codes without water.
