NI Water is pleased to announce that work has got underway on a £1 million contract to upgrade existing facilities at Mullaghboy Wastewater Treatment Works (WwTW) in Larne. It is anticipated that the work will be complete by April 2011.
Neil Brady, NI Water Project Manager for the scheme said:
“We are delighted to report that work has now got underway on this £1 million investment to upgrade the Wastewater Treatment Works at Mullaghboy. This project will deliver significant improvements to wastewater services in the area and increase capacity, ensuring that the Works complies with new Northern Ireland Environment Agency and EU regulations.”
The Mayor of Larne Cllr Andy Wilson added:
“I welcome this investment for the local area which will ensure that residential growth and development can be met well into the 21st century.”
This investment at Mullaghboy WwTW is just one example of the scale of investment required to improve wastewater services, meet European standards, respond to increasing demand and provide customers across Northern Ireland with a modern wastewater infrastructure.
