The national hosepipe ban could be lifted early.
Irish Water introduced the measure last month, following what was the driest May on record since 1850.
At the time of its introduction, 27 of Irish Water’s 900 drinking water schemes, were in drought with another 50 at risk of going into drought.
The utility says many water schemes are no longer at risk of drought, due to above-average rainfall in many parts of the country.
Irish Water will meet Met Éireann and other organisations next week to review the need for the hosepipe ban.
MD of Irish Water Niall Gleeson said " It is encouraging to see the improvement in so many of the water sources, but this recovery is fragile. That’s why input from Met Eireann on the forecast and the OPW and EPA who monitor the levels of lakes and rivers is so important."
He says they may decide to lift the ban across the country or just in certain areas.
However for now any non-essential use of water is being discouraged.
