Councillors View Progress at Drumaness Wastewater Treatment Works

17 August 2010 7:26

Overseeing the progress are (L-R):  Cllr Anne McAleenan, Theresa McLaverty (Margaret Ritchie’s Office), Cllr Patsy Toman, Cllr Mickey Coogan and Kieran Grant, Senior Project Manager, NI Water.
Councillors from the Ballynahinch area have been given a tour of Drumaness Wastewater Treatment Works to view progress on Northern Ireland Water’s £1.2m upgrade scheme. The first phase of the extensive improvements, which have been designed to reduce out-of-sewer flooding in the area, will see the completion of a new inlet pumping station by the end of August.

Other improvements include increased storm storage capacity at Spa, a new flow management regime for Spa and Magheratimpany and increased treatment capacity to meet stringent discharge standards set by the NI Environment Agency (NIEA).
