Mayor Welcomes NI Water's £3m Upgrade in Dungannon and Coalisland
12 November 2009 13:20Mayor of Dungannon, Cllr Robert Mulligan, joined NI Water to welcome the completion of the Dungannon & Coalisland Water Mains Rehabilitation Scheme. The project involved £3m of upgrades to the local water infrastructure. It’s conclusion means NI Water has successfully upgraded an impressive 42km of water mains (in the area) over the past year.
Project Manger, Gary Lawther says the project signals wider success:
“NI Water is working hard to roll out its ‘Water Mains Rehabilitation Programme’ right across Northern Ireland. The successful implementation of the sub scheme in Dungannon and Coalisand is a very positive indicator of the success we can expect in other towns and cities.
“Northern Ireland has an aging water infrastructure and it is paramount this is addressed to secure supply for the future and improve water quality. NI Water would like to thank local residents in Coalisand and Dungannon for co-operating with us and our contractor, Enterprise Farrans, while this essential work was carried out.”
Mayor of Dungannon, Cllr Robert Mulligan says many people will benefit:
“This is a welcome development for Dungannon and the surrounding area. The overhaul of the local water infrastructure is advantageous for households, businesses and tourism and will deliver enhanced water quality, system capacity and service provision.”
