Irish Water have confirmed that the current nationwide hosepipe will remain in place until the end of August.
In an announcement made on Friday, the state utility confirmed the ban will be extended until August 31st in order to conserve water supplies.
The latest announcement comes as the hosepipe ban was implemented earlier this month.
Irish Water say the extension of the ban is required as reviews of a number of local water supplies around the country have revealed that water levels are critically low despite some rainfall in recent weeks.
It is expected that water levels will remain critically low throughout the month of August and the current hosepipe ban could be potentially extended until September.
However Irish Water have confirmed that another review of water supplies will take place at the August before any further decisions are made.
Meanwhile residents in the greater Dublin area will also be subjected to night-time water restrictions for at least another two weeks, the company confirmed.
Irish Water say the level 2 night-time water restrictions are required in the greater Dublin area as water levels have not significantly improved.
The restrictions will continue to see water pressure reduced between the hours 10pm and 5am.
