Clare County Council says that water levels on the Lower River Shannon at Springfield, Clonlara, have dropped marginally since Saturday night when they reached the peak levels of November 2009.

The Council has received confirmation from the ESB of its decision to maintain the spill rate at Parteen Weir at 470 cubic metres per second (cumecs) during today (Monday).

Clare County Council Area staff, assisted by Clare County Fire & Rescue Service, The Defence Forces and Clare Civil Defence, are continuing to provide support on the ground in Springfield, as well as assist in the transportation of residents of 8 properties isolated by floodwaters.

Overnight relief is also being provided to residents in maintaining pumping operations.

Meanwhile, Met Éireann has indicated that the next band of rain affecting Clare will arrive on Wednesday evening. In the meantime, there will be scattered showers across the county.
