NI Water £1.8m Investment in North Armagh Could Double Customer Base
14 September 2009 13:37Northern Ireland Water (NI Water) is investing £1.8m in north Armagh by providing a new Wastewater Treatment Works (WwTW) with increased treatment capability. Work will soon commence on the new Annaghmore WwTW, which will replace an older unit that dates back to the 1970s. The new treatment facility, which is expected to be complete by spring 2010, will effectively meet increasing demand and growth in the area.
David Hilary of Northern Ireland Water said:
“The benefits of the new WwTW are multi-faceted. The new facility will provide an improved wastewater treatment facility in the Annaghmore area and as a result will have a positive impact on water quality in nearby waterways. This new plant will enable NI Water to fully comply with the standards required by the European Union and the Northern Ireland Environment Agency. Added to this, the works will have the capacity to deal with potential population growth in the area.
“NI Water would like to assure the public that during the course of the works, it will do everything it can to minimise disruption.”
This project is one of many, being undertaken by NI Water as part of its promise to deliver a world-class water service for people across Northern Ireland, from large cities to smaller rural communities.
