NI Water recently hosted a meet and greet with local politicians and businesses in the city’s Guildhall. The event offered the opportunity for guests to meet the Board of NI Water and the Directors of the Company.
Dr Len O’Hagan, Chairman NI Water:
“The North West is a key strategic area for NI Water; with a laboratory and 24/7 telemetry system based in Altnagelvin. We have over 150 staff members working to provide quality services to local homes and businesses.
“We understand the importance of cities and towns to the economy and to peoples’ lives - a fit for purpose water and wastewater service is key to a thriving city or town. As a Board, we have prioritised the importance of the North West, and to us that means meeting the people that work, live and govern here. We want to showcase our strategy for the area, the investment we have made to date and what our future plans look like. In turn, we hope that gives local people an understanding of the aims of NI Water and a channel for them to communicate their aspirations for the city and the wider council areas.”
Since the formation of NI Water in 2007, the company has completed 188 projects in the North West - representing an investment of £133 million and a further 29 projects are on site now or planned representing a further £47 million of investment.
The network is also considerable and across both council areas extends to 8,000km of water and sewer mains, 350 pumping stations, 288 treatment works, 79 service reservoirs and 8 sludge management centres.
The Derry City area alone requires over 30 million litres of clean drinking water every single day.
NI Water will continue to invest significantly in water and wastewater services for the whole of Northern Ireland so we can all benefit from its vision of delivering a world class service to its customers, its people and for the environment.
Looking forward, NI Water is a proud partner of NI Year of Infrastructure 2018, which aims to raise awareness of how infrastructure underpins every aspect of our lives. Further details can be found at https://www.infra2018.org/
